On July 7, those old and young came together to celebrate the seniors of Fort St. James.

With games, prizes and dress up opportunities, the seniors were ready to dance and celebrate with their friends.

The annual event brought out a good crowd who were eager to partake in the dance festivities complete with a D.J. and photo corner.

Doreen Austin was eager to get things rolling.

“I have so many cousins here in Fort St. James. This is like one big happy family. It’s going to be one fun night,” Austin said.

And as the night rolled on, even 93-year-old Betsy Leon couldn’t hold back as the music played and the dancing began.
