Elvis Spotted in Holliston

Entertainer Robert Black appeared (and sang) as Elvis during the annual Halloween Luncheon at the Holliston Senior Center.

As always a full house greeted the entertainer.  Many of the guests wore costumes.  One t-shirt was seen that read, "I'm so scary I don't need a costume!"

Guests arrived to find pigs-in-a-blanket appetizers and a bag of treats at each placesetting.  Of course the napkins had spider webs and the plates said Boo!  The lunch was prepared and served by the event's sponsor, Mary Ann Morse Healthcare Center.  The sumptuous repast presented a real problem for those who wanted to sing along with Elvis.  To chew or sing -- that was the question.  Emily Post was seen leaving the room in disgust!

Robert, aka Elvis, told the audience that he had 743 songs to pick from for his performances.  He sang a variety of genres (as Elvis did) during his one-hour show.  Dancers were drawn away from the dinner table by a rousing Cha Cha and several ballads allowed for some quality time with close friends.

The picture below captures Rocky the Flying Squirrel dancing with his very special friend.

This reporter caught up with Rocky before he flew the coop.  Rocky said he was 'nuts' for his great dance partner.  Most people around Holliston know Rocky by his street name Connie McGaffigan.  What Connie and Roberta didn't know while they tripped the light fantastic was that there were scouts in the room looking for dancers for next season's Dancing with the Stars.  Good luck Rocky and Roberta!

The Senior Center Staff (below) made sure that a good time was had by all.  And, any Senior Center luncheon isn't complete without the very popular 'door prize raffle.'  This time instead of doors, the winners received very ghoulish gift bags.  Thank you Linda, Linda, and Marty for all you do to keep the Holliston Seniors active and entertained!

As soon as the last gift bag was handed out, "Elvis left the building" on his way to his next gig just down the road in Medway.  Of course he didn't leave without one last Elvis favorite.  By the way, no one was able to confirm if 'Elvis's' hair was a 24/7 thing.  Imagine being his barber!
