September 2021 Newsletter
With the level of community transmission still HIGH for Charlottesville, Albemarle County and the entire state, the CSDS Board has decided to suspend hosting in-person dance events until the area’s transmission rate has declined. Neither Swing Swap nor our monthly 3rd Saturday dances will be held until further notice. We will continue to err on the side of caution rather than potentially put our dancers at risk, even with our vaccine only/face masks requirement. We appreciate your patience, understanding and support as we continue to navigate these challenging times. As we did earlier in the spring, CSDS will be organizing some in-person outdoor social outings. If you have suggestions and/or would like to help us organize, send us an email. If you're ever doing something fun and would like more company, let us know so we can post it on our public Facebook page to help spread the word!

September Member Birthdays:
Happy birthday to the following CSDS members: Kathryn Babbin, Arielle Boguslav, Barbara Haskins, Jamie Hervey and Kyla Miller. If we've missed your birthday, let us know!
