Rita Clay from Mobile, AL
Dancing Queen Rita Dances the Night Away

Rita Clay

Rita Clay recently celebrated her 91st birthday and the sparkle in her eyes still gleam brightly!  Mrs. Clay has always been an avid and enthusiastic dancer.  Her love for dancing became more and more apparent to Healthy Lifestyles Director, Aegina M. Jokela at Elmcroft of Heritage Woods.  After a conversation with Mrs. Clay and her daughter Debra, it was soon decided that her dream would be to spend an evening dancing. Aegina contacted Azalea Ballroom Dance Club and the club's President Cindy Youngblood quickly returned the call and said that the club would love to have Mrs. Clay join them for the evening. 

On Tuesday, May 28, 2014, Rita and her family along with Aegina were greeted very warmly by the Azalea Ballroom Members.  Cindy introduced Mrs. Clay to the other members and explained to them it was her dream to dance the night away.  She then presented her with a certificate and tiara.  The rest of the evening Rita spent waltzing, cha-chaing, doing the Rhumba and many other dances.  She had so much fun her family had to encourage her to rest between dances!  It was certainly a fun dream fulfilled.
