OVERALLS WEEKLY – 4/16/2020

Overalls Weekly – 04/16/2020

KEEP IN TOUCH!

How is everyone doing?  This is really an odd year.  It seems so strange to be at home so much and not dancing.  Let us know how you are spending your time.  We can all learn from each other.  Check in with each other. Encourage one another.  We will all get through this together.

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!

MEMBER UPDATE!

We received word on Monday, April 13th that Mel Ball had a heart attack and will be having triple bypass surgery at Sutter General downtown Sacramento.  Please keep him in your prayers.

SQUARE DANCING AT CALIFORNIA STATE FAIR 2020

The State Fair Board is taking a new approach this year for the Entertainment at the State Fair by starting earlier. We will square dance on Tuesday, July 21, 2020 at 12 Noon. It will be all singing calls. Square dancers will receive free entrance passes and parking passes for participating at the State Fair. If you sign up and do not participate, you will not be eligible to square dance at the State Fair the next year. Deadline for signing up is May 10, 2020.
