Bride Elaina Terry dancing with Papillion D.A.R.E. Officer Tony Foster.

Even D.A.R.E. Officers get surprised. Recently, Papillion D.A.R.E. Officer, Tony Foster, was invited to a wedding. Not just any wedding, but the wedding of a former D.A.R.E. student. Now 23 years old, Elaina Terry knew since she was in 6th grade that her friendship with her D.A.R.E. Officer would last a lifetime. She stayed in contact with Officer Foster over the years and always said she would invite him to her wedding someday.

Bride Elaina Terry gives Papillion D.A.R.E. Officer Tony Foster a big hug

That day finally arrived, 13 years after she graduated from D.A.R.E. The big surprise came when it was time for the dances. First came the mother/son dance, then the father/daughter dance, then the Officer Foster/bride dance. It was a proud moment for the D.A.R.E. officer and his former student.

The impact D.A.R.E. has on students is sometimes immeasurable, but not always.
