Seniors attended what is thought to be the first speed dating event for the 60 plus community in Dover last Thursday. Chatter and laughter filled a banquet hall at the Modern Maturity Center in Dover as a pianist played romantic tunes in the corner of the room. Men and women sat on tables decorated with red and white fake, but realistic looking, flowers and candles.
