The spirit of the Roaring Twenties was brought to life as residents and staff danced the night away. This evening was the "bees knees" with costumed flappers joining the dance floor as the most popular dances of the 1920s were featured, including the foxtrot, waltz, tango and, of course, the Charleston. Line dances, a conga line and the Hora rounded out the evening. Residents didn't miss the opportunity to have their photos taken in a genuine (cardboard) 1920s car.
