Celebrating those good old times

SOUTHERN Cross Apartments Moama went back (way back) in time last month for their annual dance.

The theme this year was Old Time Dance, which saw many residents, visitors and staff dressing up to dance — complete with their boogie shoes.

Activities coordinator Deb Bennett said the dance was one of the major events the residents, and their families, looked forward to each year.

‘‘It is a nice afternoon for everyone, where they can socialise and have a dance and a laugh with one another,’’ she said.

‘‘Last year we had staged a mock debutante ball for the big day, which worked really well, and this year we thought why not go back to the time when all our residents were young and bring back some of those great memories.

‘‘This is where all the ladies and gentlemen would have met, at a dance, so it was nice we could get them up and dancing.’’

The ballroom was beautifully themed for the occasion and in between and after dances everyone enjoyed an afternoon tea.

Entertainment for the dancing was provided by The Hoffmans.
