ROSELLE PARK, NJ - The Casano Community Center hosted a Valentine’s Day Party on Friday afternoon for the Roselle Park community and the surrounding area. As everyone entered the center they were greeting by the staff and the decorations were in the true spirit of Valentines Day with balloons, and heart decorations everywhere. 

The event sponsored by Roselle Park Mayor Carl Hokanson and Council members had a very large turn out. Mayor Hokanson could be seen many times out on the dance floor with Councilman William Fahoury and many others who put on their dancing shoes and were grooving to the music by the R&B Show. 

You could hear the awe of many when Mayor Hokanson approached one senior and asked if she would dance with him.
