103rd annual Oldtimers’ Dinner and Dance

In attendance at the Oldtimers’ Dinner and Dance on Saturday night were, from left, Janet Clark, Ellen Reichert and Marge Rogers of the Rural School Research Project. The theme of the event was “School,” and local square dancers were the dining entertainment while Total Entertainment of Craig provided the entertainment for the evening of dancing.

For many years now, the distinction of being the senior members in attendance at the Oldtimers’ Dinner and Dance has gone to Ethel Starbuck and Joe Sullivan. This year saw Starbuck, left, who is 97 and Sullivan, only 94, shaking a leg on the dance floor again.
