ASDSC RETURNING TO DANCING SURVEY

The ASDSC is conducting a survey to determine how square dancers feel about returning to square dancing.  Now that California is beginning to open up again it looks like we may be dancing again soon. It will be dependent on the hall rentals as we plan ahead. As we start planning for the future we want to know if and when you will start dancing again. Please take a moment to complete a short survey by clicking on the link below.  https://forms.gle/1aZfAizJEP2mCnug7

Thank you for taking the time to complete our survey.

DANCING UPDATE!

As of Saturday, May 2, Placer County’s local health order will expire and residents will be guided by the governor’s Executive Order to shelter in place — removing any confusion over areas of difference between the two orders.  It appears the governor will keep the shelter in place order at least through the month of May.

The Veteran’s Memorial Hall in Royer Park will remain closed until the governor lifts the shelter in place order.  That means all Overalls workshops and dances are canceled until further notice.  Keep in touch so you will know when we will start dancing again.

In the meantime, if you need any assistance or hear of any of our members becoming ill or having problems, please don’t hesitate to let us know! Our phone number is 916-573-0228. And if you haven’t heard, the most recent guidance from the Placer County Health Officer is to wear a cloth face covering if you go out, not so much for your protection, but for the protection of others. They have found that you can spread the virus before you have any symptoms. Stay home and stay safe!

ALTERNATIVES FOR SQUARE DANCING AT HOME!

While we continue to shelter at home there are a few unique ways we can do some square dancing at home.  Check out the following links and let us know what you think.

OVERALLS LUAU DANCE IS CANCELED!

As a result of the Stay-At-Home order from the governor and the continued closure of the Veteran’s Memorial Hall in Royer Park our board has decided to cancel our Luau Dance Scheduled for Saturday, May 16th.

We want you to know we miss you all and are looking forward to the time when we can all get together again.  Until then, stay home and stay safe.
