PITTSFIELD -- On Saturday, Feb. 9, the Senior Leaders youth group of the Boys & Girls Club of Pittsfield hosted a "County Wide Inclusionary Valentine's Dance."

The event was free to all school-age special needs students throughout Berkshire County. The party included a deejay, dancing, pizza, drinks, desserts, free photographs and an arts and crafts table.

"Because of the weather the turnout was on the light side, but those who attended had a phenomenal time. It was a lot of fun and such a great experience for all involved," Tina Wixsom, community coordinator for the club, said in the news release.
