A number of visitors and guests took part in a hula hoop dance program at the Tamaqua Salvation Army community center, including Carly Rickert from Lansford, left, and volunteer instructor Dani Butala from Coaldale. Dina Depos is the Tamaqua program's director. Although the exact origins of hula hoops are unknown, both children and adults around the world have played with these hoops, twirling, rolling and throwing them throughout history. Sometimes, plastic hula hoops are filled with rocks or materials which serve as weights to help carry the hoop around the body.
