The City of Alexandria’s 41st Annual Toys for Tots Benefit Square Dance is scheduled for Sunday, December 6, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., at Lee Center Exhibit Hall, 1108 Jefferson St.  The event is dedicated to the memory of Butch Adams.

This year’s theme is “Forty One and Still Not Done!” and will feature a special 3 p.m. performance by Capital Squares Demonstration Team.  The annual square and round dance benefits the United States Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Drive by collecting toys and donations at the event.  Recommended donation for each dance couple is a new, unopened toy or a $10 minimum contribution (singles $5).  The public is also invited to come watch the square and round dancers perform.  If you do not wish to participate as a dancer but would like to donate a toy, you may drop off your donation until 3 p.m. at the Lee Center. All toys and proceeds from this dance will remain in the Washington metropolitan area.

The City’s Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities and the National Capital Area Square Dance Leaders Association and Washington Area Square Dance Cooperative Association are co-sponsoring the festival.

For additional information, call the City’s Special Events Hotline at 703.746.5592.

The City of Alexandria is committed to compliance with the City’s Human Rights Code and the Americans with Disabilities Act.  To request a reasonable accommodation or to request materials in an alternative format, call Cheryl Lawrence, Regional Program Director, Special Events Office, of the Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities at 703.746.5419, (VA Relay 711), or e-mail cheryl.lawrence@alexandriava.gov.
