Our annual “Sweetheart Ball” was held last night at our Riverview home. A crowd of family and community members gathered in our dining room to get a good look at our elders as they came through for the grand march. They were all decked out in beautiful dresses or suits and ties. A group of beauticians volunteered their time to come in and do hair and make-up, much to the delight of our elders.
After the grand march, it was time to hit the dance floor with music from a live DJ. Words cannot describe the joy our elders expressed during this annual ball. After dancing for a while, everyone took a break to enjoy a fancy dinner, complete with ribeye steaks, grilled chicken, baked potatoes, and salad from our new Riverview Restaurant & Grille. The special dessert for the night was this month’s Taste of Hometown winning dessert recipe.
The evening ended with the crowning of this year’s Sweetheart Ball King and Queen. Local news channels and newspapers were on hand to get the scoop on this awesome event.
