Dance draws local hippies to Clermont Senior Services

The Swingtown Sisters: Kathy Mullins and Becky Murrison of Batavia along with hippy friend, Mia Supe of Williamsburg.
On Saturday, March 24, more than 175 people “made the scene” at Clermont Senior Services’ 50s & 60s Rock & Roll dance.

DJ Danny Earls from WGRR-FM (103.5) provided great music, Golden Rule Catering provided great food, and St. Bernadette Church provided a great venue.

The crazy, but not quite regrettable pictures taken in the Say Cheese! Photo Booth, provided the most Rip-Roarin’ fun.

“For the first year with a new venue, the event was outstanding,” said Executive Director/CEO Cindy Gramke. “Our mission is to help frail, elderly citizens live safely at home. Most of the older adults we serve are over age 70, have low incomes, live alone, and have limited or no family support. Sometimes all they need is a little extra help to stay at home where they are happier and healthier. The dance raised almost $10,000,” remarks Gramke.

Superior Homecare Plus and Angels Home Care were “Treat Me Nice” Presenting Sponsors. Superior Homecare provided gift bag treat for all attendees.

“At the Hop” sponsors included, Interim Homestyle Services, Linda Pilon, CPA and Kamphaus, Henning & Hood, CPA’s, Inc., Little Miami Home Care, Mercy Health — Clermont Hospital, and Sieber Construction, Inc.

“A special thank you to the Amelia Kroger for filling the 140 balloons with helium that were used for decoration and to the dance volunteers for their gracious support,” said Event Coordinator, Frankie Hughart.
