(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- 

More than 400 seniors took part in Commissioner Jordan’s 6th Annual Valentine’s Day Dance at the Landmark facility in Northwest Miami-Dade County. Commissioner Jordan is on the far right.

More than 400 senior citizens showed up in red and white attire for Miami-Dade County Commissioner Barbara Jordan’s 6th Annual Valentine’s Day Dance. The event, sponsored by the veteran Commissioner, was held at Landmark for the elderly in District 1.

“I wish you could have seen these people who are young-at-heart shaking it up on the dance floor,” said Commissioner Jordan. “The dance floor was filled to capacity as everyone was doing the Electric Slide and other dances from the golden era.”

The dance, which began at 5 p.m., was filled to capacity before the doors officially opened. The seniors were treated to door prizes, a three-course meal and the musical sounds of George Lane & the Miami House Rockers.

“The early arrival of these seniors sends a message that more events are needed that address this segment of our population,” said Jordan. “I am hopeful that we will be able to incorporate more activities that meet their needs.”

The  Valentine’s Day Dance was sponsored in part by concerned corporate citizens  including  Calder Race Course and Casino, Florida Power and Light Company, AVE, The Tax Doctor, World Waste Recycling Inc., and Hebrew Homes Health Network, Inc.
