Dec 18, 2013

Plenty of family and friends showed to the Capitol Theatre Tuesday night to attend “A December to Remember.”

The Lebanon Senior Center held the aptly named event with the night’s festivities beginning at 5 p.m. with a mix and mingle for guests.

Activities included music, dancing and hors d’oeuvres, with all proceeds from the evening set to benefit the center. 

Admission for the event was $25.

Center Director Patti Watts said this was a big event for the center and unlike any done in the past.

“We have a Valentine banquet and we have a yard sale in the spring, but this is the first time we’ve done something like this,” Watts said.

From 5-6 p.m. attendees visited with one another, chatting and networking, all while also enjoying an assortment of wine and food.

Music for the evening was provided by David Hale from 6-8 p.m., with a dance floor available for partygoers to let loose, which included a full floor for most of the night. Event attendees took to the floor to participate in slow dances to country classics, as well as group dances to songs such as The Electric Slide and The Cupid Shuffle.

The night also featured a silent auction, with items up for auction such as handmade quilts, crocheted throws, a cowboy hat and Christmas CD autographed by local country music artist Gretchen Wilson, jewelry, paintings, an autographed Tennessee Titans jersey and gift certificates to local businesses, among other things.
