After casting their ballots on Nov. 8, some folks made their way over to the Stephenville Senior Citizens Center for the annual fall dance, sponsored by the Tarleton State University student organizations Sigma Alpha Pi and Institute of Management Accounts.

Popular local musician Kaye Tolson and her group provided the music, which consisted of a variety of styles ranging from Ray Price, George Strait, the Rolling Stones, and even some fast Cajun and Polka numbers from the group's fiddler, James Roberson. 

Highlights of the dance included the ever-popular "Chair Dance,” where dancers rotated partners as they passed by a folding chair, placed in the middle of the dance floor and getting to see the crazy antics of "Scooter,” one of the regulars whose dance moves are reminiscent of the guy on the Six Flags commercials and just when you thought it couldn't get any better, it did as Stephenville's Recreational Superintendent Hawk Scott literally put everyone in their place when he invited them to participate in "The Mannequin Challenge,” an internet challenge that's sweeping the nation.

After about an hour, everyone took an intermission and made their way into the dining room, where the Tarleton students had an elaborate smorgasbord of finger foods, punch and cold beverages.
