Senior Center party brings ‘50s back to life

The Southside Senior Center on Denton Street in La Crosse held a ’50s-themed party Saturday afternoon.

Complete with poodle skirts, 1950s music and a little dancing, attendees say it was the perfect chance to reminisce.

“Well a lot of us are from the ’50s era, some a little before and some a little after, and we just thought it would be a fun thing to do,” senior center board member Janet Tenner said. “We do a lot of fun things here. We don’t just play cards all the time. We’re a very social group and we have a wonderful group here.”

About 30 people attended Saturday’s event.
