Valentine’s Day Ballroom Dance at Oak Park Arms

Music and love filled the air at the Valentine’s Day ballroom dance at the Oak Park Arms retirement community this past Valentine’s Day.  Members of the retirement community and others invited from the public enjoyed an afternoon full of dancing and fun with music provided by The Freenotes Big Band orchestra.  The dance-goers, which also included some retirement community employees, had a delightful time dancing along to music from the 1940s through the 1960s.  Refreshments were provided and complimentary and an afternoon full of fun and love was guaranteed.

Dressed their very best, below you will find pictures of the members of the retirement community and others invited from the public enjoying the music and joy-filled dance on February 14, 2016.
