Sock it to me
Dance held at Senior Center
1 Katy Sawyer Calvin Wallace
Senior Center regulars Katy Sawyer and Calvin Wallace share a dance at the Sock Hop held Thursday night at the McMinnville-Warren County Senior Center.
The sock hop got its name in the 1950s when students held dances at their schools, usually in the school gymnasium or cafeteria. The dancers were required to remove their hard-soled shoes to protect the varnished or waxed floors, thus dancing in their sock feet. Visitors to the McMinnville-Warren County Senior Center didn’t remove their shoes to dance at the Sock Hop held at the facility Thursday.
