Throw in some whiskers on kittens, and you’ve got a few of everyone’s favorite things and a good weekend in Craig.

• Fathers, be good to your daughters. Take them to the Father Daughter Ball on Friday night.

The third annual Father Daughter Ball runs from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Friday at Craig Christian Church, 960 W. Victory Way.

What a fun way to share some quality time together with dancing, crafts, dessert and a movie room.

It’s $5 a person, and you can pay in advance or at the door.

Call Linda Cass at 824-5322 or the church office at 824-6024 to learn more.

• In my humble opinion, there’s nothing more heartwarming than orphan animals finding a new home.

That new home could be yours as the Humane Society of Moffat County hosts an adoption day from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Craig Animal Shelter, 2430 E. Victory Way, inside the Bear Creek Animal Hospital.

The Humane Society offers reduced adoption costs during the event. Check out the pets that are available at www.petfinder.com.

• Whether you’re a politico or a community member interested in learning more, don’t miss the Craig Chamber of Commerce’s annual meeting, the State of the County.

The event starts at 6:30 p.m. Friday at the Holiday Inn of Craig, 300 S. Colo. Highway 13.

Craig Mayor Don Jones presents the State of the City, Moffat County commissioner Audrey Danner provides the State of the County, and Colorado Sen. Al White, R-Hayden, offers up the State of the State. The Chamber will provide the State of the Chamber.

The event also includes awards for Small and Large Businesses of the Year, Businessperson of the Year, Citizen of the Year and Chamber Ambassador of the Year.

You can sit in and listen for free or purchase the chicken marsala dinner for $40 a person. There’s also a cash bar.

Tickets are for sale at the Chamber, 360 E. Victory Way. And even if you don’t want dinner, RSVP to 824-5689 or office@craig-chamber.com.

• Love soccer? Join the mid-winter classic soccer tournament this weekend.

The tournament starts at 9 a.m. Sunday at the Boys & Girls Club of Craig, 1324 E. U.S. Hwy. 40. Shinguards and tennis shoes are required. Youth teams are $10, and adult teams are $25.

Call Bill Sawer at 824-0116 for all the details.

• For some more recreation, join the Kids Outside Nature Club at 2 p.m. Sunday at Yampa Valley Golf Course.

Call Robyn Morris at 824-1703 or visit www.kidsoutside.wordpress.com for more information.

• The Sports Page Bar in the Holiday Inn of Craig, 300 S. Colo. Highway 13, features Chancey Williams and the Younger Brothers Band on Friday and Saturday.

They play a good mix of laidback and dance music in the country/rock genre. We saw them play this summer and were pretty impressed, so it’s worth checking out.

• At West Theatre, “Valentine’s Day” and “Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief” play for a second week.

• If you’re in the mood for some more visual entertainment, don’t miss the Winter Olympics, which continue to be televised throughout the weekend.

From curling to hockey and figure skating to alpine skiing, there’s a little bit of something for everyone.

• And once the weekend has passed, we can look forward to the next Craig Concert Association performance.

The group presents the one–man show, Circus Incognitus with Jamie Adkins, at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Moffat County High School auditorium, 900 Finley Lane.

Admission is $20. Call Julie Dempster at 824-5251 to find out more.
