Elvis event at Gladstone
The Gladstone senior center was "shaken up" in the best way possible last week as Elvis (Todd Anderson) serenaded the crowd with all-time favorites, spreading an atmosphere of joy and nostalgia. His magnetic presence had everyone tapping their feet and singing along, creating cherished memories that will undoubtedly last a lifetime. Amidst the lively performance, there was a special moment that warmed our hearts. Elvis took a pause from his set to sing a heartfelt rendition of "Happy Birthday" to our beloved Community Bridge member, Tom.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Oak Meadows Senior Living for their generous support in making this event possible.
