Trinity Hall was brimming with excitement on November 17 as people, dressed in their finest 50’s attire, came for the Sock Hop! The DJ music was rockin’ and on the dance floor there were dancers of all ages. Every so often, there were games and contests. Teams were challenged to pass the hula-hoop the fastest and individuals were faced with blowing the largest bubble gum bubble. Everyone was cheering as the hula-hoop spinners competed. (How do they keep that hoop spinning?!?) Prizes abounded for the contest winners as well as well-deserved prizes for the best costumes.
“Kisha’s Diner” was open for business and served up hamburgers and hot dogs with all the fixin’s, chips, and plentiful salad. Everyone attention was gotten when the ice cream and root beer/orange float bars were opened. Many kids had never had a “float” before, so it was exciting to see them experience that pleasure for the first time.
The photo booth was always occupied. There great props that everyone enjoyed. Families and individuals made multiple pictures to take home – what a great way to remember this extraordinary event.
