On August 22, the Walpole Council on Aging orchestrated an enchanting dinner party, embracing this year's theme, An Evening of Jazz. The event proved to be a resounding success, with attendees donning their finest attire and relishing one another's company. Against a backdrop of silver and black accents, the multi-function room of the Council on Aging was transformed into an elegant dinner venue, complemented by music-inspired centerpieces that extended into the main lobby. The ambiance buzzed with lively conversation, forging a sense of community amid the sounds of jazz.

Guests were welcomed with specialty drinks, including pineapple spritz and watermelon mojito mocktails. The evening commenced with a refreshing salad and bread course, setting the tone for the culinary experience. Following the salad course, guests were offered a variety of main and side dishes to choose from, crafting a bespoke dining experience.

The evening culminated in the sweet notes of live music accompanying coffee and cake offerings for the guests.
