Dancing the night away, VFW style! – Picture by Rose Hammitt

The Springfield VFW Post 755 on Fridays nights is the place to be to trip the light fantastic especially if you like the oldies but goodies. Kevin Turner’s band plays dance tunes that dancers with much more skill that I ever had or will have use to float across the room like dancing on a cloud.

I went to the VFW to cover Helen Turner’s 100th Birtdhday. I went with my friend Rose who used to go every Friday with her late father. It was a bit nostalgic / sad for Rose who took the pictures of an amazing dancing Helen as she danced the polka and the waltz.

The group that comes to the dances are on the far side of 50, but all are welcome and this dance group showed me a kinder gentler time when dancing was king and dress up was the norm. Think about putting on your dancing shoes getting all dolled up and swaying with your sweetie to songs of yesteryear
