Helen Vlahos

90th Birthday

Helen is a member of the Lake City Tappers and at 90 still tap dancing with vigor. Her friends and members of the Lake City Tappers treated her to a lunch and special tap dance to celebrate her 90th birthday. Here is the poem they gave to her.

To Helen Vlahos on turning 90: April 24, 2021

In many a language our Helen sings

She shares her joy of many things

To all her friends her love she brings

When tapping a dance she really swings

In shoes, skies or skates a memory rings

To 90 years of life she clings

And to our hearts she gives us wings

Her life is full, no need for blings

Our friend we love, she really zings.
