Overalls Weekly – 08/20/2020

DANCING UPDATE!

We do not have anything new to report since canceling the rest of our events for the year.  Even though we have canceled all of our in-person dance events for the rest of the year we are working on ways we can stay connected.  One day, when COVID-19 is just a memory, we will want to start dancing again so we want to keep in touch.  Keep your eyes open for future on-line events.

Remember, 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!

NAME THAT CALL!

I started something new this week. I wanted to do something that would be fun and something that would help us, as best we can, keep up with square dancing skills.  I call it NAME THAT CALL.  The idea is I will post the Caller Lab definition for a square dance call any you respond with what call it is.  You can find the first post on our website at NAME THAT CALL #1.  You can also check it out on or Facebook page at www.facebook.com/Overallssquaredance
