Sock hop evokes fun memories

Sock hop evokes fun memories
Eleanor Smith and Leah Kelly were visitors at The Windsor during a Summer Sock Hop.

Recalling their own days of “rockin’ around the clock,” nearly 150 residents at The Windsor Ortega and visitors turned out for a summer sock hop and barbecue under the front portico of the assisted living and memory care residence at 5939 Roosevelt Blvd. Vintage cars courtesy of The Clay County Cruisers and plenty of polka dot decorations gave the June 9 event a festive feel, and many enjoyed treats from Cool Scoops ice cream truck.

The sock hop is one of the ways The Windsor helps its memory care residents recall their past and make them feel comfortable in their environment. The event was also an opportunity for potential residents to visit the facility, which opened in Ortega/Venetia in 2014.
