Vernon’s Star Country Square Dancing open for seniors

The event takes place every Thursday at the Halina Senior Centre.

The magic of romance can take you by surprise especially in your senior years.

Those love songs that were of no interest to you now take on a whole new exciting meaning. It may come as a shock to children and grandchildren that gramps, surprise, surprise, may be quite good at sweeping his new love off her feet.

Or how about grandma who tries to explain this new phenomena by saying it’s like a fluttering tingle in her heart. It’s love – a new kind of heart attack. Who would’ve thought that seniors are having this much fun.

Common to all of us is a deep sense gratitude that they have found someone to cherish and be cherished by. And a bonus is that they have a whole boatload of learned life experiences, such as, “Don’t sweat the small stuff.”

What’s great about Star Country Square Dancing, which occurs at the Halina Centre on Thursdays, is that singles and couples, no matter their age are welcomed. It can even be a family affair.

Life is short. Death is certain. And love is real.
