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.

door. What's not to like? The price was right.

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.
