Frankfort Township’s latest event for seniors gave area residents a chance to connect — and hit up the dance floor.

More than 100 seniors signed up for the first Country Hoedown, held Aug. 14 at CD&ME in Frankfort, and many of the attendees donned cowboy hats, plaid shirts and jeans just for the occasion.

“These people are just remarkable,” said Frankfort Township Trustee  Dave Smith. “It’s nice, it’s really nice to see them come out. It gives them something to do.”
