Dozens of members of the Winston Lake Friends Association came together at the Elks Lodge #449 last week to show off their talents and fashion sense during the fifth annual Senior Royal Revue Talent and Fashion Show.

The Winston Lake Friends Association started in 2016 with a goal to bring members of the Winston Lake Family YMCA together to help those in need and develop various initiatives at the branch located on Waterworks Road. The Senior Royal Revue is held annually to raise funds for the Y and give the members a night to remember. The Winston Lake Family YMCA’s roots date back to 1924 when the branch opened on Depot Street to serve African Americans. In 1985 the branch moved to its current location, 901 Waterworks Road.

During the sold-out event held on Friday, Nov. 1, members of the organization demonstrated their vocal range, recited poetry, and showed off their dance moves. The event also featured models featuring some of their favorite outfits. 

When discussing the Royal Revue, Stuart Cooke, who has been a member of the Winston Lake Friends Association since it was started, said it feels good to see how the event has grown over the years. He said, “The event started out a little slow at first and then people started seeing what we were doing and joined in. It’s a great feeling to know that we have grown so much.”

After the show and dinner, members and others in attendance took to the stage and ended the night with the Electric Slide.
