Poston Crowned Mrs. Spring
The first Senior Social, hosted by the Lee County Extension Education Association (LCEEA), was held on February 23 at the American Legion Hall in Lexington from 2 pm to 5 pm.
The hall was set to entertain Sr. Citizens in and around the Lee County community. Card tables of four players were set up around the room for games and fellowship. Door prizes were awarded to many. Beautiful floor lights and musical entertainment were enjoyed by the young (at heart). Karaoke from the crowd kept the group in stitches.
Artis Poston of Lexington was crowned as Mrs. Spring and Jack Jones of Giddings was crowned as Mr. Winter. They will hold these titles until next year. Pictures were also shared. Sharon Murphy and her husband came dressed as “Going Steady”. Matching outfits of red and white were absolutely outstanding. Sharon wore a red skirt, white shirt and a red short scarf tied around her neck. On a chain, she wore her husband’s ring to bring out the theme of “Going Steady”.
Lee County’s own “Elvis Presley” (a.k.a. Jon Caskey) made an appearance and periodically came on stage throughout the party. Everyone stayed on a sugar high from the kitchen which was flowing with hundreds of homemade cookies and refreshments. The group’s thirst was quenched with tea and coffee. Some made new friends, others renewed old acquaintances.
The great evening of fun and fellowship ended at 5 p.m.
