On Dec. 31, we had a New Year’s Eve party at the community center and over 60 residents enjoyed a fantastic show with a variety of music.
Billy Cole sang everyone’s favorites, including many requests like “Open Arms,” “YMCA,” “New York, New York,” “Drinkin’ Problem” and so much more. The music was played from 6:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m., and there was much dancing. There were fast dances, slow ones and some line dancing thrown in.
There were 16 door prizes with such gifts as a pancake breakfast, Egg in a Bag, and some monetary prizes.
Annmarie Shackewyc told me a little about how the show went, and she said that everyone had a good time. She was also good enough to take some pictures of the evening and the happy Grand Horizons residents.
The entire community center was decorated, and there were some long tables with red tablecloths, black napkins, New Year hats and horns, along with other noisemakers to ring in the New Year. In addition to the lovely tables, the chairs had beautiful black backing.
Everyone brought a nibble to share with their table, plus more was set up on another table.
The entire show was hosted by Gary Wilcox, and he did a fine job from what I heard from others.
