The auditorium was filled with residents, family and friends for the “Forever Young” Luncheon and Fashion show. The luncheon buffet was delectable salads, sandwiches and fruit, and of course there were several dessert choices. As they ate, they were serenaded by our entertainer, Matt Snow. Matt’s crooned the smooth sounds of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jr., and brought smiles to faces and made the toe tap. He even did a little soft shoe for us! As residents were our models, they dawned the runway with colorful attire from gowns, to slack outfits, sportswear and international attire. They beamed as they showed off their outfits with the crowd. Several young men from a local high school, Miami Valley Christian Academy, accompanied our ladies down the runway. I believe fun was had by all.
The fashion show began years ago when Betty Burris and Eugene Oliverio had a vision of a fashion show, using clothes from our thrift shop Chez Eugene. Betty has since passed on but leaves her legacy behind.
