Heritage at Sugar crowns queen and king at Valentine's sock hop

The Heritage at Sugar Mountain, an assisted living facility in Newland, celebrated Valentine’s Day for all the residents with refreshments and a sock hop with music provided by Bob Ollis. The new socks were provided by the Sunday School class of the Newland United Methodist Church and Ollis, dressed as Elvis, played and sang a tribute to him that included a lot of his most popular songs. The residents enjoyed the singing, dancing and excitement over the crowning of the king, Charlie Anderson, and queen, Wanda Pritchard (both pictured), by their popular vote. The king received a crown and some candy, while the queen received a bouquet of roses and candy.
