Kudos to seniors dancing team

"The write-up by Sheri Regnier was very well done. However, there are a few things I would like to add."

Thank you for the story on dancing at the Columbia View Lodge (Sessions get seniors dancing, Trail Times March 18).

The write-up by Sheri Regnier was very well done. However, there are a few things I would like to add.

The people who help with the dancing are like a team, and they do an excellent job.

Although I started this, my dance friends do as much as I do and I would like them to have equal recognition.

They are: Janice Alexander, Jeff Alexander, Barry Benner, Karen Lees, Ann Lucarelli, and Hanne Smith. Margo Wright and Monty Roblin are the staff members who make it all possible every week. They make sure the residents are safe and having fun, and they participate in dancing too.

The residents of Columbia View Lodge are a great bunch to work with. They are so much fun that they make the whole night great. So many residents want to dance now that I could do with another six dancers to keep up with them all.

If any family members or community members would like to have fun dancing with the residents on Wednesday evenings between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m., they would be most welcome.
