Overalls Weekly – 04/09/2020

OVERALLS DUES

Here we are at the beginning of April when dues are usually due.  Don’t worry.  since we suspended dancing, we have also suspended dues. Your membership in the Overalls will continue.  Once this virus has passed and we begin dancing again we will reinstate dues.  Until then, stay home and stay safe.

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.

Carol and I have been playing Farkle with family via ZOOM or Skype.  This Friday we will be playing Bingo with Carol’s family via Skype. It is important that we keep in touch.  Use your imagination and share with the rest of us how you are spending the time. I am confident we will all get through this together.

OVERALLS LUAU DANCE

Our next dance will be our annual Luau Dance on Saturday, May 16th at the Veteran’s Memorial Hall in Royer Park, Roseville.  We have a new format for this dance.  The format for this dance will be:

  • 7:00 – 8:00 pm: Full Plus
  • 8:00 – 10:00 pm: Alternating Sept. New Dancer and plus (NO ROUNDS)

We will be featuring LAWRENCE JOHNSTONE.  Mark your calendars now. It’s going to be a Hoot!

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.
