Meridian, Miss. Residents of Aldersgate Retirement Community were treated to some moves Friday.

Freshmen football players from East Mississippi Community College in Scooba visited to dance and socialize with residents.

The players saw it as a way for the team give back to the community.

"It means a lot to us," said Todd Mays, EMCC quarterback and runningback. "I know it means a lot to them for us to come and sit down with them and talk with them and dance with them. And you know, we're enjoying ourselves."

The EMCC Jazz Band was scheduled to come perform for the residents, but some of the members were sick. That visit will be rescheduled.
