On Friday night, Wheatley’s cafeteria was transformed into a 1950s-era Big Band swinging playland! Hosted by our Tri-M Music Honor Society, our annual “Puttin’ on the Ritz” evening was a delight for everyone in attendance. Scores of our residents enjoyed an evening of free food, terrific music and wonderful company.
Dressed in pink poodle skirts or all in black, our Tri-M students provided table service to all in attendance. The food was delicious, the dessert was tasty, and the coffee was as hot as the music. Wheatley’s Jazz Band provided wonderful music, and Chelsea Wolgel and Jillian Gothelf providing some vocal lead to some of the songs. All the while, our guests were able to eat, dance and enjoy themselves.
Thank you to our Tri-M faculty advisor, Ms. Angela Luftig, for her assistance in organizing this event. Thank you as well to our Jazz Band director, Mr. Steven Fitzko.
