The band the Uptown Strings will mark 46 years of playing music at the weekly Senior Dances.

There will be a cake and celebration to honor the anniversary on Oct. 14. The Senior Dances are noon to 3 p.m. every Wednesday at the Admiral Coontz Recreation Center.

The Recreation Center recently reopened to the public, allowing the Senior Dances to start up again. Betty Parsons Miller has been playing for the entire 46 years, but the band members have changed. Miller encourages others to come listen to the music. “There’s plenty of room there and plenty of places to sit if you get tired of dancing.”
