Photos: A far out night of fun at Monterey

Flower power and tie-dye were happening at the Monterey Recreation Centre as guests relived the days of the Coffee House and the sixties. The groovy menu featured meatloaf, mashed potatoes and creamed carrots, followed by chocolate cake. First the new Monterey Avenue Minstrels, then the Monterey Ukulele Club played the tunes of the day from protest songs to love ballads. The evening was “far-out.”
