Attendees included the City of Dunedin Mayor, City Manager, and Commissioners, members of the Dunedin Seniors Hall of Fame, 60 participants from the Tampa Bay/Sarasota area and the 285 CIT Week Participants.
As a violin solo was performed, appetizers were enjoyed, followed by a delicious meal. The program, themed “Be Stronger Longer” included a heartfelt testimonial and greetings in their native languages from representatives of each of the 12 countries present. On the big screens, a slideshow featured seniors around the world and a special preview of a “50th Anniversary, 2020” promotional video.
As dessert was served, the Samba Band and Lion Dancers sprang into action, amazing everyone with their energy. Our special guests enjoyed having Lion photo-ops!
