Oak Park Ave, Oak Park, IL.

More than 130 seniors and members of the Oak Park community attended the free ballroom dance on Saturday afternoon.

“Our Valentine’s dance is always a favorite in the community,” said Heather Lindstrom, director of marketing at the Oak Park Arms. “Seniors and kids were together having a great time taping their shoes and dancing on the ballroom floor.”

The Freenotes is a 22-piece orchestra that plays music from 1940s through the 1960s. The name “Freenotes” originated 30 years ago when the band’s founder, the late Art Mertz, gathered a few musical friends to perform at an outdoor fundraiser. The group didn’t charge – hence the “Free”notes.

The Oak Park Arms is a rental retirement community which provides senior housing in the form of senior independent living and assisted living apartments. Additional services include respite care and an award-winning adult day care program. Furnished apartments are also available for a short-term stay – a weekend, a week, a month or longer.
