So, when she heard about a dance downtown on Labor Day weekend, she wasn’t about to miss it. “I decided I was going to go out and have a good time,” said Glass-Kelly, who will turn 70 this October. “I put a lot of work into looking cute, and not like some pregnant person.” Local R&B groups the Exciters and the Blazers were playing that Friday at Stem Hall, which sat next to Roy Wilkins Auditorium until it was demolished to make way for the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts.
