Lakeland’s seniors put on a fund-raising party

Lakeland’s senior citizens and family members showed how to cut a rug, jam with some favorite tunes and set out a delicious buffet on July 10.

The Senior Music Fest, a fundraiser for the city’s senior center, was held from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. at the International Harvester (IH) Clubhouse in Lakeland. Attendees were invited to bring their musical instruments, music CDs and finger foods, as well as a little cash for the tip jar to benefit the center.

The event kicks off the center’s monthly electric guitar jam. Linda and Wayne Knight will be hosting a monthly electric jam session. The next one will be 5-8 p.m. Aug. 7. Attendees are encouraged to bring their instruments and CDs and be ready for karaoke and dancing. Snacks are welcomed.
