November15, 2019 (Monroe, NC) ─ Seniors stepped back in time for a tour of the decades at the annual Residents Rights Celebration at Bethlehem Presbyterian Church in late-October. Sponsored by the Centralina Area Agency on Aging, the theme of this year’s event was “Find Your Voice,” with each community in attendance picking a historical decade to dress up as. Sporting tie-dye shirts, headbands, peace sign necklaces Woodridge, a DePaul Senior Living Community in Monroe, took first place with their rendition of the 1960s.
Pictured above are Woodridge residents Rodolph Frances, Elizabeth Alley-Hess, Nancy Snyder and Elizabeth Clontz.
The celebration included a talent show, popcorn, ice cream sundaes with a variety of toppings, dancing and singing. Prizes were given to the winners and everyone in attendance received a goodie bag.
“A great time was had by all and we were very proud of our first-place win,” said Activities Director Samantha Smith.
