Dance, walk, and golf to support services for seniors

Clermont Senior Services has three events scheduled this spring to help raise much needed funds to support services during these difficult economic times.

The first event will be our Fourth Annual 50s & 60s dance to be held on Saturday, April 4, beginning at 8 p.m. at American Legion Post 72 on Old State Route 74 in Eastgate. The cost is only $20 per person and includes admission, snacks, drinks, and a light meal.

Tickets for this popular event are limited to the first 300 people. Listeners of WGRR 103.5 FM are familiar with disc-jockey J.D. Hughes, who will be spinning the discs to tunes like Sh-Boom, Tutti-Frutti, Bye Bye Love, Peggy Sue, and Rock Around the Clock.

The evening will also include dance and costume contests, raffle prizes, split the pot, and door prizes. So, ladies dust off your poodle skirt, and guys put a couple of shiny pennies in your loafers, and come join the fun.

Saturday, April 25 is the date for the 15th Annual James Sauls 5K Run & Walk. The driving force behind this event for the past 14 years has been Congresswoman Jean Schmidt, in partnership with the Greater Cincinnati Foundation.

As many people know, Jean is a marathon runner and through this event has supported the memory of James E. Sauls Sr. who was a faithful supporter of the needs of children, youth, families and senior citizens.

Last year the Greater Cincinnati Foundation asked Senior Services to take over the leadership for this event, with Congresswoman Schmidt
