Letter from the President

 Club members,

I would feel guilty if I did not take every opportunity to let you know about our up coming event Dancing With The King. This is definitely going to be a history making event! If you haven't already made arrangements to be there and enjoy the show, you will not want to delay any further. Tables are filling up fast.

Top pros will be here teaching and judging the competitions. We have Janelle Moranto and Jim Moranto. New to us will be Jason Barnes from North Carolina who specializes in country and swing dances. This is truly going to be an event that you will not want to miss. 

We need help with concessions, door monitors, clean up, and installing and removing the dance floor. All those interested in helping, please contact either Charlise, Rubye Del, or myself.

President Destry Heylin
