There was a record-breaking attendance at the recent Sock Hop and Ice Cream Social at Island Center Hall. A green-and-white polka dot “dress of the evening” was worn by Erin Cloke, who topped it off with a pony tail. She and her husband Nick are doing the “yo-yo,” a classic Swing move.

Props to Sheila Phillips of Educated Feet for hosting the annual event and for keeping dance alive and well on Bainbridge. And thanks to Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Recreation District for their continued support.
