KEEP IN TOUCH!

We may not be dancing but we can still keep in touch.  Check in on each other.  See how they are doing.  Tell them how you are passing the time.  Remember, we are a family and we are all in this together.

SQUARE DANCERS DOING WHAT WE CAN

Many of you have probably seen the posts going around regarding how square dancers can help out during this crisis by making and donating facemasks to our health facilities.  Following are a few resources you may find useful if you wish to pitch in.  I want to thank Natalie Rush (Main Street Strollers, Nancy DeGan (Apple Jacks & Jills) and our own Barbara Ruffner for providing the resources below.

GUEST CALLER LINEUP

Scott will be doing some traveling this year so he will not be here but don’t worry, you will be in good hands.  Barbara Ruffner has done a great job lining up guest callers who will fill in for Scott.  This is a great opportunity to dance to callers you may not have danced to before.
