Below is the story that I sent to our District 5060 Newsletter editor and it may or may not be included in the next "Roundup".

The Club’s members wined, dined, and entertained almost 500 Local Area Seniors for a Free Evening of Dinner and Live Entertainment.  Most seniors danced part of the night away to music by the Backyard Band.

The Club sponsors this event which for 50 years has been free to Vernon Area seniors, the proceeds for which come from the Club’s funds and contributions from the Christmas Carol Festival.

             ROTARY CLUB OF VERNON'S 50th ANNUAL SPRING BREAK-OUT FOR SENIORS

The Club’s members wined, dined, and entertained almost 500 Local Area Seniors for a Free Evening of Dinner and Live Entertainment.  Most seniors danced part of the night away to music by the Backyard Band.

The Club sponsors this event which for 50 years has been free to Vernon Area seniors, the proceeds for which come from the Club’s funds and contributions from the Christmas Carol Festival.

 The highly anticipated event is a free dinner and dance with live entertainment for local seniors. Attendees enjoy a delicious complimentary meal with wine, served by Rotarians themselves. Door prizes are provided by local businesses, dance performances and live music for dancing round out the fun evening.

The Spring Break-out allows seniors to get out and have a social evening at no charge while welcoming the return of spring although this year there was a skiff of snow and cold so that the doors were opened early to allow seniors to come out of the cold.

The event is an opportunity for seniors who are valuable members of the Vernon community to mingle and meet people of the same age group and share common interests. The Rotary Club of Vernon also provides free drives for those who do not have transportation of their own.

As seniors gradually left to go home as the band played on, Rotarians received many thanks and smiles including a $5 tip for good service.
