Music filled the air and feet filled the dance floor Saturday night at Moffat County Fairgrounds Pavilion.

But, the partygoers weren't just dancing — by purchasing tickets to the Senior Social Center's Decade of Dance, attendees were helping fund a valuable resource for Craig's senior citizens.

Kathy Fagan, president of the Senior Social Center board, said the dance had about three times as many participants as the previous year and received incredible support from the community.

"It's absolutely humbling how supportive the community and the individuals have been," she said.

"It feels good," said Robert Meyers, CNCC student government president. "It's a community college, so to actually work with the community feels real good."

The proceeds from tickets and other sales will go to benefit the Senior Social Center, which operates at CNCC's Bell Tower Building, 50 College Drive.

Jackie Camp, program coordinator for the Senior Social Center, said the facility provides an important service for Craig's older residents and she was excited to see so much support in an event that involved people from all generations.

"It's very important," she said. "Too many times seniors…tend to become reclusive and it's very important for them to get out, have some place to go."
