‘Fall Frolic’ to kick off dance season


Members of the Burbank Center for the Retarded will shake a leg when

they celebrate 30 years of dancing with the “Fall Frolic” -- the

first dance of the nine-month season -- on Sept. 12.


The dance, which is open to adults and teenagers with

developmental disabilities, will be from 7:15 to 9:15 p.m. at the

McCambridge Recreation Center, 1515 N. Glenoaks Blvd. Admission is $2

for dancers, and caregivers are admitted for free. Birthdays will


also be celebrated.

Several local groups, including the Altrusa Club and National

Charity League, Burbank Chapter, will be on hand that night and

throughout the season to host refreshments. The Burbank Civitans,

Burbank Noon Lions, Foothill Civitans and Kiwanis for Fun will also

be helping out.

Also present will be local DJ and Burbank Freemason Ken Barnes.

Barnes, who has spun songs for center dances in the past, has signed


up to do the entire season.
