ROCKPORT — Roses are red, and chocolates taste great, but this year, Quarry Hill, The Riley School and Penobscot Bay YMCA have a new way for you to celebrate the sweetest day of the year.
The three organizations are putting their hearts into a free, community-wide, chem-free Valentine’s Day Dance Party, to be held Friday, Feb. 14, from 6 to 8 p.m., in the Community Room at Penobscot Bay YMCA, in Rockport.
Folks of all stripes and all ages – kids through seniors, singles as well as couples – are invited to turn out and boogie in any way they’re able, or just sit back and watch the action.
A live DJ will be on hand, spinning danceable tunes from the ’30s and ’40s to the present day. Complimentary refreshments, courtesy of Quarry Hill, will fuel the fun.
“Youngers, grab your elders; parents and grandparents, grab your kids; and make this your most moving Valentine’s Day ever,” said Quarry Hill, in a news release.
