Catty church hosts sock hop

Wednesday, October 31, 2018 by PAUL CMIL Special to The Press in Local News

The Presbyterian Church of Catasauqua, 210 Pine St., held its first-ever sock hop event Sept. 29.

Guy Edwards, the event’s deejay, brought out his collection of ’50s and ’60s music for the party.

“This was just a fun event that we put on. It wasn’t a fundraiser. We wanted to open the doors of the church to anyone who wandered in,” Edwards said.

The tables were stocked with turkey barbecues and hot dogs, as well as homemade desserts.

Everyone who attended seemed to have a good time. Edwards has 30-plus years of experience as a deejay and spins tunes for a few local gigs.

“We hope that by having events like this, we can get a few people interested in joining our congregation,” he said.
