Special Recreation Dance
On January 25th Veterans Park District’s Special Recreation Department held its 6th Annual Dinner Dance at Bulger Park. This year’s theme was Dancing with the Stars. Thanks to our generous sponsors, we were able to serve our guests a delicious and elegant dinner provided by Cuomo Catering. We want to acknowledge our amazing DJ from the night Rich Stachon, who always plays the best hits and keeps the party going with his own dance moves! Also,
a special thanks to Pan American Bank for donating to delightful goodies to our sweets table and volunteering their time at the event. At the end of the dance attendees received a special souvenir to remember the night.
Our Special Recreation Dance provides a place for participants to share their love of music and dance. Many of our participants look forward to dressing up for the theme and socializing with peers.
