|Dinosaur Stomp moves to Event Center|
|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
With a big, loud “Dinosaur Stomp,” Dragon’s Wagon Preschool took its year-end spaghetti supper and program to the Phillips County Event Center Thursday, May 16.
The change in venue proved successful for both the fundraising meal and program, which included entertainment by the children, as well as a live auction and silent auction.
Two groups of preschool students entertained with songs and rhymes, decked out in colorful headpieces and handheld props.
“Five Little Dinosaurs” was the song, with six preschoolers taking center stage near the end of Thursday night’s “Dinosaur Stomp.” Preschoolers are pictured from left, Cozner Ring, Jackie Santiesteban, Anessa Colglazier, Marely Favela, Teagan Martin and Eduardo Flores.
Children who will not be entering kindergarten next fall opened the dinosaur theme program Thursday.
Starting off the program was “Dinosaur Stomp,” featuring Alexxander Mateo Zazo, Mylee Dirks, Andres Bencomo, Erica Flores and Chance Piper.
Roxy Santos Dominguez, Ricardo Juarez Goytia, Abby Hoch, Briseyda Gonzalez Lopez, Rorey Schneller and Ilario Turcio Espinal made their way to the center of the stage for “If I was a Dinosaur.”
“Baby Dinosaur” brought Reese Steggs, Kaden Herman, Sadee Mosenteen and Adrian Chafino to the front.
“Dinosaur Roar” was a fun one presented by Riley Powell, Jacob Fu, Logan Martin, Sylvester Jones, Brody Smith, Marix Perez, Claire Hubbard and Hadley Kerst.
