The Dickson Senior Center hosted its annual New Year’s Eve celebration with live music, dancing and prizes.

Both Center Director Joan Rial and Assistant Director Dwan Nelson were on hand to help celebrate another year of fun and success with the center’s activities which include fitness classes, dance classes and clubs.

The fun kicked off with a light meal and prizes awarded for Best Dressed Couple, Best Dressed Man and Best Dressed Woman.

The winning couple was Lynn and Ray Taylor, with Lolita Hopper selected as Best Dressed Woman and William Harwood as Best Dressed Man.

Live music was provided by The Cotton Band, which featured Larry Sullivan on guitar and vocals, Billy Clark on keyboard, Tony Martin on bass, Lawrence Donnegan on drums, and Harold “Cotton” Neblett on guitar and vocals.

Just as the activities were beginning to wind down, several members of the Dickson City police department made a surprise visit. The officers shook things up on the dance floor as they partnered with a number of the center’s members.

The center is located next door to the town’s main police station. 

There were no tickets or warnings issued, just arresting behavior that uplifted spirits and added to the fun.
