What an enjoyably delicious night! Many thanks to George and Katherine for scooping out the cool and tasty refreshments.


In September we will be having a Country Picnic, with all the fixings. We will be providing Hotdogs, buns and sauerkraut, relish, catsup and mustard. If you would like, bring your favorite picnic dish to share.


Please RSVP for September Dance 

THE ROAD MAP FOR THE DANCE FLOOR


Clara Formoso gave wonderful instructions on how to navigate the dance floor. Even taping the lanes on the floor. My rendition or comprehension of the lesson was "Outside lane is the highway, middle lane in the country road and the middle is the driveway".
