What a great way to kick off Seniors’ Week. A Saturday Nite Dance Party was attended by many seniors from surrounding communities when the Rama seniors hosted it on Sept. 27 at the Rama Golden Jets Centre.
Highway 5 entertained at the Rama Golden Jets dance party. Band members included Mike Daviduk (centre) and Laureen and Hank Ukrainetz.
Seniors’ Week is recognized in the fall to encourage seniors to stay active to promote their vitality. Dancing is one way that certainly does this and the Rama seniors plan to continue hosting dance parties on the last Saturday of every month.
Funding from Parkland Valley Sports Culture and Recreation enables the seniors to carry on this program. The dance parties have attracted many dancers from Canora, Invermay, Buchanan, Hazel Dell, Preeceville, Wadena, Kelvington, Okla, Yorkton and even as far away as Wynyard. Many enjoy the music, the socializing, the exercise and of course the dancing. Many have commented on meeting new friends and enjoying the atmosphere in general.
The evening is always fun-filled, with a lunch served by the club members to conclude the party.
