Every Thursday afternoon from 1:30 until 4 p.m., seniors from all over the country get together at the Keremeos Seniors Centre to “cut a rug”.
Dancing is the activity du jour for members of the senior community on Thursdays, and it’s not unusual to find couples from all over Western Canada participating in the Thursday afternoon sessions, which also feature live music.
Thursday, January 2 was no exception as 15 – 20 couples took to the floor for an enjoyable afternoon of dancing waltzes, polkas and other ballroom type dances.
“We’ve been coming here for 13 years,” said Harry Lamberti of Nepawan, Saskatchewan. He and wife Vi winter in Osoyoos and enjoy the weekly trips to Keremeos on Thursday afternoon.
Other dancers hailed from Summerland, Oliver, High Level, Alberta, and Penticton.
