Anne Berk Will Celebrate with Cake and, of Course, a Dance!
Anne Berk, a proud Rockette from the 1930’s, will be turning 100 on November 26th, 2018. Since leaving the Rockettes, Anne has lived a full life, working as a switch board operator for General Marshall during WWII, raising a family, running her own children’s dance school for over 20 years, and teaching and performing with seniors as “The Rockettes of Ages” – until she was 88.5 years old. Today, Anne lives at Winter Growth Assisted Living in Columbia, MD, where she enjoys socializing and participating in a wide variety of activities with other residents and day program participants.
Dance is still one of Anne’s greatest joys. Since moving to Winter Growth in 2017, she has choreographed and led multiple performances, including Independence Day celebration dances, as well as the Center’s annual Easter Parade. At her one century mark, she still manages to out-kick everyone from her chair!
The community is invited to join Winter Growth for Anne’s birthday celebration at 11am on Wednesday, November 28th. There will, of course, be a fun dance performance choreographed by Anne, as well as cake for all. Please RSVP to Colleen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
