Retirees Still Know How to Party!
About 35 Heritage Group members including many significant others attended a superb dinner and dance held at the Prairie Lights Restaurant on Thursday evening, November 20.
The pre-dinner reception at 5:30 p.m. featured a glass of punch and hors d’ oeuvres prepared and served by the Food Services Department under the supervision of Jeff Gill followed by a delicious buffet dinner with a variety of food that catered to all palates.
The Heritage Group Social Committee chaired by Gail Shimonek and including Liz Omeniuk, Glenn Baldwin, Steve Lipishak, Karen Wall and John Reimers organized the dinner and dance. Many thanks to the committee for putting together such a fun event!
Our sincere thanks as well to Jeff Gill and the Food Services Department staff for catering the occasion. Elena Grinshteyn and Janice Lowry from the Development Department did a great job coordinating the details.
Following coffee and dessert most of the attendees had an opportunity to “get down” with some energetic dancing to tunes from our youth. Despite a cacophony of creaks, cracks, groans and a few mild curses, most of us were even able to get back up.
The Social Committee also solicited several door prizes, including gift baskets, which were distributed among some lucky winners. The prize recipients were Bob Omeniuk, Percy Shimonek, John Graeb, Norma Baldwin, Bob Hudson, Irene Varnes, Marilyn Hernandez, and Liz Omeniuk.
As an enjoyable time was had by all, the consensus was the event should be repeated again next year.
