The Rotary Club of Grand Cayman hosted nearly 400 senior citizens at its annual Boxing Day lunch on Saturday at the First Baptist Church Hall. The club has put on the annual event for nearly 50 years. Attendees were treated to lunch, prizes, goodie bags and entertainment. Many seniors recited poetry from memory, told stories and sang songs. The event culminated with a lively dance that even drew some seniors out of their wheelchairs, eager to show off their moves.
