JESPY clients, families, and staff had a grand time recently at the annual JUBILEE. The theme of the celebration was ‘JESPY Dances Through the Decades’ and marked the milestone birthdays of several of our clients: Mike Posner (40) was the ultimate ‘80s rock star; Ted Karafin (50) dressed as a ‘70s beatnik; Phyllis Immediate (60) glowed as Pinky Tuscadero from the ‘60s-inspired TV series Happy Days; and Thomas Vreeland (70) was the epitome of ‘50s cool as Elvis. Throughout the afternoon, everyone danced to music from various decades and enjoyed songs sung by the 10-member JESPY Glee Club.
