Recap of February's Dance

...."I really enjoyed the dance last night, I told Ed how much I enjoyed his music, He did a fantastic job!" Lucy Shorter

Love was definitely in the air last night! The music was fantastic, and we had a great turn out in spite of the rain. The night held a lot of firsts.

Kathy Peoples debuted as our teacher. She did a great job teaching us the Country 2 step. We introduced the birthday dance, which was well received and participated by many, and we had a waltz mixer.

Our winner for the 50/50 was Billie Reid and the Door Prize, 2 free passes to our dance, were Melissa Shaw and Pam Bernard
