Music, dancing, and memories filled the air at a previous seniors dance in Groveport in 2019. As well as dancing, attendees reminisced while thumbing through old school yearbooks and looking at historic photos of Groveport, and enjoyed each other’s company, including this group re-enacted the choreographed dance moves of The Supremes while the song “Stop in the Name of Love” played. Groveport Town Hall will host the latest version of the event, called the Sweetheart Senior Dance, on Feb. 12 from 3-5 p.m.

Grab a friend or your sweetheart, put on your dancing shoe, and come to the Sweetheart Senior Dance!

The dance, which is open to senior adults and is hosted by the city of Groveport Community Affairs, Senior Center, and Senior Transportation, will be held Feb. 12 from 3-5 p.m. in the second floor ballroom of Groveport Town Hall, 648 Main St.

“This Valentine-themed event will have free appetizers, beverages, a DJ playing classics from the 1930s through the 1970s in addition to special requests and each person in attendance will receive a boutonniere and a complimentary ticket to our photo booth that they will receive as a keepsake,” said Groveport Community Affairs Executive Assistant Kristiauna Trelay. “Everyone will be buzzing with delight as Town Hall’s auditorium is transformed into a playful atmosphere styled with lots of sparkles and pink and red hearts.”

Additionally, attendees can travel down memory lane and reminisce by looking at Groveport Madison High School yearbooks and other historical items provided by the Groveport Heritage Museum.

Trelay said events like this are positive experiences for the community.

“It is important that the community has something positive and exciting to look forward to right here in their backyard, especially during these challenging times,” said Trelay. “This is good for seniors to enjoy themselves while also reconnecting with others within the community, while simply enjoying the nostalgia of the past.”

Admission to the Sweetheart Senior Dance is free. To RSVP, contact Groveport Town Hall at 614-836-3333 or in person at Groveport Town Hall, 648 Main St. by Feb. 8. For Senior Transportation call 614-836-7433.
