December 29 2004 marked a return to a historic York-Adams  Area Council tradition for Senior Scouts - the annual Snow Ball.  Our Council hosted an annual winter dance for senior Scouts from 1949 through the 1980's.  This year's revival was hosted by Manchester's Crew 1 and East Berlin's Crew 911.  The dance was open to all YAAC VSE members and their dates.  As you can see from the photos below, a good time was had by all.

A wild conga line ends the evening.

The 2004 Snow Ball was a huge success.  If you weren't there, you missed a fine evening.  But don't despair - odds are the Snow Ball is back in business for next year.
