Rep. Walle hosts successful Senior Dance

HOUSTON — State Representative Armando Walle (D-Houston) hosted his inaugural senior citizen dance on Friday, August 20, at the Northeast Harris County Senior Center.
More than 100 senior citizens from the Hardy Senior Center, Northeast Senior Center, and North Central Senior Center came together to dance, enjoy refreshments and pose in keepsake photos at the event.
The Senior Dance was made possible in large part through sponsors such as, East Aldine District, AT&T and the Northside Redevelopment Center.
In addition to Walle, notable attendees included Congressman Gene Green, Commissioner Sylvia Garcia and Sheriff Adrian Garcia.
The local officials thanked the seniors for their long service to the community. Representatives from the offices of Senator Mario Gallegos, Representative Ana Hernandez and Commissioner El Franco Lee also came by in support.
“Hosting the senior dance was a pleasure and I look forward to making it an annual event. I appreciate our community’s involvement and great response to this successful event. After the years of service our seniors have provided to the community, I was happy to host them for a celebration in their honor,” said Walle.
