Dancing with the Stars

        The 11th season of Ottawa County Dancing with the Stars wrapped up on Saturday night, Nov. 17, at the Sunrise Banquet Hall in Millbury.

        Six local stars paired with professional dancers to raise funds for the Ottawa County Family Advocacy Center. The stars included Jill Cecil, Jennifer Collins, Angela LeForce, Joe Miller, Jim Recker and Frank Swinehart.

        The event raised more than $27,000 to continue the work of the agency. The stars were assisted by professionals from Class A, Dance Suave, Madison Street Dance and Ballroom Company.

        Opportunities to be a star next year for season 12 are now available.

        The Ottawa County Family Advocacy Center’s mission is to provide compassionate support to children and families as they navigate the educational, social and legal systems of our community. The agency currently is operating a CASA program, TNT Mentoring Program, TICKET to Success and Grand Love.

        In addition, it operates the summer lunch and fun program in Ottawa County. For more info, contact 419-301-0225.
