A Gatsby Themed Night To Remember

May 23, 2017

By Cathy Stuehmeier

What a night! Last Saturday evening I attended the Centralia Cultural Society and Light & Lens Camera Club as they presented “A Gatsby Themed Night To Remember.” And an evening to remember it was, with fabulous entertainment by the UCD Performers of St. Louis and ending with dancing to the music of Alan and Ian Presswood, complete with appetizers and soft drinks.

Everything from the waltz to the foxtrot was performed, all up to the Cultural Society’s perfect standards. It truly was a night to remember Gatsby style.
