Senior Friends plan 'Fabulous Fifties' program

by Staff Reports

All seniors (55 or older) are invited to join the Piedmont Hospital Senior Friends for a “Fabulous Fifties” program Wednesday, May 15 from 10:30 a.m. to12:30 p.m. Those attending will step back to those innocent days of rock ‘n roll, drugstore cherry sodas, high school dances, “souped up” cars, flat-tops and Butch wax, and girls swooning every time singers like Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry or Pat Boone came on the radio.

The meeting will be held in the Exhibition Room of the Coweta County Fairgrounds at 275 Pine Rd. If you want to be really cool, dress in your favorite ‘50s attire ... pedal pushers, neck scarves, poodle skirts, rolled up blue jeans, pink shirts and white bucks, and white t-shirts with rolled-up sleeves sporting a pack of cigarettes. Or take a walk on the wild side in your black motorcycle jacket or tight pants and high heels.

One of the city of Newnan’s finest, Firefighter Brian McKenzie, will provide the entertainment. A hot catered lunch is included for $7 but reservations are required.

To make your reservation, call the Senior Friends office at 770-400-2374 or current president Louise Swint at 678-423-9289 for further information.

Senior Friends is a local membership organization sponsored by Piedmont Newnan Hospital dedicated to helping people 55 and older live healthier, more fulfilling lives. Its purpose is to provide information, fun and fellowship to older adults in the area. Annual membership is $15 per year for singles, $25 for couples.

In addition to the monthly luncheon, Senior Friends sponsors a stress-free Bridge Club every Wednesday from 1-4 p.m. at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church on Roscoe Road. You do not have to be a member of Senior Friends to participate in the bridge group.
