Everyone had a great time at the Valentine’s Day party at the Center.

Refreshments provided by Chef Judy were delicious, and the entertainment was well-received.

Grant Groblebe played his guitar and sang favorite Western songs, both current and past. The King, Dwain Sandlin, and the Queen, Barbara Ingram, presided over the festivities.

Our Most Red Dressed winner was Loveda Swaim. We had several participants, and all were beautiful in red. If you missed it, you can come to our next celebration — St. Patrick’s Day—on Friday, March 16. We’d love for you to come, and dress in green. You may win the Most Green contest.
