On May 4, the Garfield Elementary PTO hosted its second annual Father-Daughter Dance at the school, 1514 S. 9th Ave. in Maywood.

“At Garfield, we try to provide an atmosphere for fathers and daughters to come together and spend quality time together,” said Vernell Brown, the PTO president.

“Fathers are always working,” he said. “This gives them an opportunity to show their love and appreciation for their children.”
