Folks went green to the annual Seniors 55+ Going Green Dinner, hosted at IH Clubhouse on March 9 in Lakeland. Decked out in green attire, seniors fit right in with the decorations honoring St. Patty’s Day and the upcoming arrival of spring.
Bartlett Choral and Drama Club brought some New York City scenery to the annual dinner with its Broadway presentation.
The 16-member Bartlett Choral and Drama Club had attendees tapping toes and clapping hands in no time with hits including, “Everybody Loves My Baby,” “Getting to Know You,” and “It Don’t Mean a Thing If It Ain’t Got that Swing.”
Approximately 90 attendees enjoyed a catered menu of roast beef with gravy, mashed potatoes, green beans, fresh garden salad and strawberry shortcake for dessert. Trustmark Bank sponsor Christy Fitzwater made an appearance. Also attending were sponsors Jimmy and Amy Wilkins with Pop-A-Lock, who donated the big prizes of the evening.
Student volunteers were on hand to keep tea glasses full and tables cleaned throughout the evening.
“It was a great evening celebration,” said Kim Odom, Lakeland Senior Center manager. “The entertainment by the Bartlett Choral and Drama Club, was icing on the cake. Every time they are here, it’s a real treat.”
