Elvis Alive at Edgewood

Jan Lenczowski, Activity Assistant, dancing with resident, Loraine Arnold, while “Elvis”, Brian Brenner, sings in the background.

Pink Cadillacs, 45 records, juke boxes, ice cream sodas, poodle skirts and balloons decorated the living room at Edgewood Manor as “Elvis” made his grand entrance.  Music echoed throughout the halls as “The King” performed an hours worth of his favorite tunes.  He shook his hips to the beat of the music while residents reached out to shake his hand.  Smiles were plentiful as the audience jitterbugged to old familiar songs taking a trip back in time at their 1950’s sock hop.
