ROCK SPRINGS – From damaging weather all over the world to the tragic day in Boston, a government shutdown and locally the continued positive growth of our community, we all are looking back at the year that was. Why not remember the past year with community friends as the Young-At-Heart Senior Center prepares for its annual New Year’s Eve party at the Sweetwater Events Complex?
The event kicks off at 5 p.m. on Tuesday. Marketing and Events Coordinator Jamie Lee said party goers will enjoy a full dinner with Roast Beef, baked potato with everything on it, vegetables and dessert. Dinner will be served from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The EIO Band and Sundowners will provide dance music all night long. Balloons and a sparkling cider toast at midnight with the Sundowners will wrap up the party.
If finding a babysitter is difficult, parents can just bring them along. Lee said there will be a kids play area. Children under 11 can also bust a move on the dance floor as long as they are with an adult.
Tickets for the event can be picked up at the Young-At-Heart Center on Monday and Tuesday or at the door New Year’s Eve. The price is $20 for adults and children 11-years-old and up. There is a reduced ticket price for children under 11.
All money raised from ticket sales stays in the senior center as it will go to help provide cash matches for different grants which help the center.
Lee also joked that every spouse and the parents of employees will more than likely get put to work. All joking aside, student volunteers from Rock Springs High School will be assisting throughout the night.
“Nothing that we do would be possible without volunteers,” Lee said.
If anyone in the public would like to volunteer their time on New Year’s Eve or for any other event, Lee said call her at 352-6737.
