Holiday party for seniors at Horizon
All seniors, 50 years of age and older, are invited to attend a holiday party sponsored by Senior Citizens Inc. of South Lake Tahoe Senior Center. The event will take place Dec. 4 at the Horizon Casino Resort.
Beginning at 10:45 a.m., no-host drinks may be purchased from the casino and brought back to the banquet room. At that time, those who wish may join in the singing of holiday songs and socializing. At 11:30 a.m. there will be a brief installation of officers for 2005. Lunch will be served a noon. A choice of broiled salmon, chicken Milanese, vegetarian lasagna or roast top sirloin of beef must be made when tickets are purchased.
At 1 p.m. the seniors will be entertained by Lake Tahoe’s Shining Stars from Marcia Sarosik’s Dance Studio, who will present a holiday review of tap, jazz, ballet, lyrical dance and clogging. The performers range from 2 1/2 years old through high school age. Many of the dances are set to holiday favorites like “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and “Winter Wonderland.” There also will be selections from the “Nutcracker Ballet” and dances from their 2004 spring recital.
These dancers have performed at community events, Disneyland, the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts in Reno and countless other venues. They are called “Lake Tahoe’s Shining Stars because they light up the stage wherever they perform. The seniors have been delighted by their performances whenever they were entertained by any of these dancers in the past. The dancers have made this event a holiday tradition and look forward to performing for one of their favorite audiences. Gifts will be distributed to all the participants at the party following the entertainment.
Deadline for tickets to be purchased for the holiday party is Nov. 29 at the South Lake Tahoe Senior Center, 3050 Lake Tahoe Blvd. Tickets are $10 for members and $19 for guests. Membership, which includes a monthly newsletter describing all the activities of the group and many other items of interest, is only $10 per year.
