In celebration of Coon Rapids Snowflake Days’ 50th anniversary, local seniors put on their straw hats and leis and danced to the beat of Beachcomber Bob during a beach party thrown at the Coon Rapids Senior Center Feb. 3.

Strumming his guitar as Beachcomber Bob, Bob Burgess chased those winter blues away with playful songs by Elvis, Don Ho, the Beach Boys and more.

After a playful hour spent on an imagined sandy beach, seniors enjoyed a noon meal served in the dining room, while the wintry sunshine bounced off piles of snow outside.
