Out and About: Baby boomer virgos celebrate birthdays

Posted: Monday, September 8, 2014 6:00 pm

A jubilant crowd of baby boomers, those born between 1946 and 1964, celebrated birthdays with others sharing the same astrological sign at the 7165 Lounge in Mt. Airy. Virgo celebrants, friends and family gathered on Aug. 29, to bring on the party with great music, live entertainment, birthday cakes and more.

Among those celebrating birthdays was Harold “Rusty” Frye, a mental health professional, who also enjoys being a DJ and uses spinning tunes as a source of relaxation and stress relief. Frye’s actual birthdate is Aug. 29 and he proudly points out that he shares it with the legendary “King of Pop,” Michael Jackson.

Doug Henderson of WDAS is the host and Frye, also known as “DJ Kappa,” spins those nostalgic Motown tunes and other fabulous music. He had many surprise guests, thanks to his wife, Lois Frye. They included his Masonic brothers of Stewart H McCard #49 and fellow members of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., Philadelphia and Norristown alumni chapters.

Some of those “Out & About” having an awesome time were fellow members of the “Back in the Day Picnic Committee” — Lynda Brown Bagley, Michele Lewis Bell Roberts, Barry Crawford, Donald Johnson,Norris Roundtree, Malcolm McGraw, and Robert “Bobby” W. Williams III. Theodore Horne Jr., Tawnee Harris, Charkes Hicks, Terrell Burnett, Ronald Cage,Deborah Stephens, Donald Johnson, Diane andHarold Freeman, Lynwood and Earlene Gaffney, Stan Barnes, Debrah Lewis, Jean Townes, Ethel Washington, Lenora Smith, Roger Leyseth, Jack Coffied and Judge Derrick Coker were also among those enjoying the festivities.

Mercer Redcross of the 7165 Lounge always greets you with a smile. He summarized the attraction of this event for baby boomers, saying. “We provide a comfortable, safe environment for older adults. Although young folks are welcomed, boomers are at the top of the list in terms of service that meets their needs. There’s lots of Motown and a variety of great music with the volume kept at a low level to accommodate good conversation about the grandkids and boomer gossip. Our DJ is a boomer, and our host is a boomer. Tasty food is baked, not fried, and healthier for boomers. Our boomers feel they are being rewarded for a “life” job well done. This translates into their giving back to us in loyalty.”

Enjoying cocktails at the bar is another popular feature along with contests and prizes relevant to the baby boomer era. The dance floor is another big hit that many find irresistible.

During the party, which has been going on for the past year, there is a special segment where everyone celebrating a birthday is recognized with birthday serenades, cheers and applause.

Everyone had a fantastic time and this venue serves a large part of the population that was being overlooked when it came to happy hours and night life.

Just some of the upcoming baby boomer events scheduled for September at the 7165 Lounge are a performance by Philly’s own Kathy Sledge Sept. 12 and an appearance by former boxing heavyweight champion Mike Spinks Sept. 19. Complimentary dinners will also be included and there is no admission charge.

Special birthday shouts to Virgo baby boomers Michael Dutton, Shawn Lacy and Dr. Ramsey Chew!

Have a fantastic week, “Out & About,” everyone!
