The Sugarbush Racing Club did not have a race Feb 6th, but you can be sure that many of their members didn’t miss getting their aerobic and balance exercise that day. The Valley Players’ Playhouse rocked with the Club’s First Annual Winter interlude Dinner and Dance. With the help of Richard from RPM Entertainment, the place became a four-hour continuous motion dance machine featuring music from the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s
One of the highlights of the evening was Barbara and Larry Bennett boogying to “The bugle boy of Company B” and later gliding to Glenn Miller’s “In the mood”. In between there was Gina Davis showing off her new knees getting a little bit lower then everyone else with “Shout” and than proclaiming that “I haven’t done that in thirty years”. Loretta Menkes took the opportunity to dance claiming it was part of her PT program to get back to the slopes.
Alas, there were a few “chair dancers” nursing sore knees, but it is a ski club after all. Most everyone however, were on the dance floor when “Moonlight in Vermont” was played. Favorites from 60’s and 70’s brought out groups that caused the floor to bounce. The DJ couldn’t get to all the requests.
This wonderful BYOB event was hosted by Deb Koch and the Club’s Social Committee who turned the Playhouse into a ballroom, decorated tables and hired a top DJ. Everyone enjoyed great appetizers, a fabulous pot luck dinner and luscious desserts.
