Piedmont Senior Resources Area Agency on Aging (PSR) is planning a free social function for all seniors age 60 and older in the region, headlining it as a “Senior Throwback Dance.”
The event will be held on Friday, Sept. 6 from 11 am until 2 pm at the Farmville Moose Lodge, which has generously donated the use of their building to host this exciting event.
“We’ve been hearing from our seniors for some time that they want to fellowship in a different environment than the friendship cafes,” said Director of Nutrition and Transportation Thomas Jordan Miles III. “This event will include music, dancing, a nutritious meal, prizes, and much more.”
Seniors living in Amelia, Buckingham, Charlotte, Cumberland, Lunenburg, Nottoway and Prince Edward are invited to attend. Seniors will be required to sign in, provide their telephone number, and undergo a simple assessment over the phone before attending the event.
The music, provided by DJ Mike “Baddog” Thompson, will span the 1950s through the 1970s. Lunch will also be provided.
“For those of you who love to dress up, feel free to come dressed in the attire of your favorite time era,” Miles said. “There will be a prize giveaway for the best dressed lady and gentleman. Dressing up is encouraged, but not required.”
If you would like to attend the event, YOU MUST RSVP by calling PSR at 434-767-5588 and asking to speak with either Nikki Dean or Jordan Miles.
