We’ve already started planning our website and hope to have it up and running soon. If you have not already given your Email address to our Membership Chairman, Benny Ferreira, please do so ASAP at 925-287-9715. Vicki Collins, our newly elected VP is working very hard to set up our website. We hope it will be helpful to dancers in the area; and we also hope to send our fliers and newsletters via Email in the future.
If you have any ideas or suggestions regarding our club, pls. call me at 925-686-3783. —Bill Dowling.
Those of you who attended our Christmas Party at the Elks Club know what a great event it was. It was the first time we have had a festive party in conjunction with the Merry Mixers in a long time and everyone seemed to enjoy the nice dinner served by the Elks Club. Of course the music by Nob Hill Sounds was so very danceable as usual! Thanks to Rene Montheil who is a member of the Elks and made it possible for us to use their facility.
Some of us had the opportunity to visit the new Pleasant Hill Senior Center when they celebrated their grand opening. If you have not been there yet, we urge you to stop by to take a look. It is that nice! And, they have a great dance floor. They will be starting their Tea Dances on Thursday, Feb. 21st at 1:00 pm, with DeeJay Colin Dickie.
If you haven’t already renewed your membership, don’t forget you do save money by being a member, i.e., you pay $2 less for admission to our dance each month and you dance for free in the month of your birthday. Such a bargain!!!
We do appreciate your patience to enter the dance each month as we really cannot open the doors before 7:00 pm. Dancing doesn’t start til 7:30. Having your membership card out when you check in helps us tremendously at the check-in desk. Thanks for your cooperation!
Once again, a big round of applause for our Refreshment team headed by Faye Petras and ably assisted by Freda Keat and Helen Ecklin who served delicious cake and ice cream at our Black and White Ball last month. There were some very elegant dancers out there….A few tuxedoes and dress suits on the gentlemen and several beautiful ladies in their ball gowns! Maybe we’ll have to rename it the elegant Black & White Ball.
