CSDS Newsletter ~ May 2021
Greetings CSDS Dancers!

The CSDS Board has continued to monitor the situation regarding Virginia restrictions on social gatherings. The Board believes vaccination is a key part to returning to social dancing and our entire Board has been vaccinated. At this time, we are planning to reopen with a vaccine only social dance event on July 17th, the 3rd Saturday in July! We are planning to begin vaccine only Swing Swap in August. 

Participants will be required to register prior to attending all vaccine only events. Prior to registration participants must submit proof of COVID-19 vaccination. For full information on our vaccine only event plan, please review the CSDS Vaccine Only Event FAQ.

The Charlottesville COVID vaccination center now takes walk-ins at certain times; you can schedule your appointment here.

Social Outing ~ Hike the Monticello Trail
Mark your calendars for Sunday, May 23rd when CSDS goes for a hike, organized by Kristin Wenger! We'll meet at 1 pm EST at the trail head (closest parking lot). The hike is 2 miles to the Visitors Center and 2 miles back. See the Facebook event and visit the Monticello Trail website for all the details!
