Young at heart dance the night away

Bill and Doris Alton of Mexico show romance can last.

Community R-VI TREND Club sponsored the 7th Annual Senior Citizen Prom.    This was a community dance for the older people in the surrounding towns that believe they are still young at heart.  Popular music from the 1950’s and 1960’s was played for reminiscing and the enjoyment of our guests.  Music included country music giving the opportunity for two-stepping, popular/rock music for the guests that were a little more energetic, and polka music just for fun.  Special requests were also taken from the audience.  There were 52 guests that danced the night away.
TREND stands for Turning Recreation Experiences New Directions.  The focus of the club is to encourage people to make healthy leisure choices.  The club is involved in activities throughout the year that include: drug/alcohol awareness, seatbelt safety, anti-smoking campaigns, and community service activities.
