Overalls Weekly – 09/12/2019


The Overalls next New Dancer Class starts NEXT THURSDAY (September 19th).  If you have a friend who missed the beginning of our New Dancer Class last February this is their chance to get started.  Please help us get the word out!

If you are in our current class you are invited to join us a 6:30 pm where we will finish teaching you Mainstream or you are welcome to take the beginner class again.

We will need plenty of angels for this too, so please try and stay for the class so we can help introduce these new dancers to the fun of square dancing!  We appreciate every one of the angels who stay for the class, we have comments from the new dancers expressing their appreciation as well!

It is not too soon to sign up for the 60th Annual Harvest Hoedown at the Yuba-Sutter Fairgrounds, 442 Franklin Avenue, Yuba City, CA., October 25-27, 2019. There are three ways for you to register, 1) See Barbara Ruffner who can take your order, 2) register online at or 3) register by mail.

Since no one has volunteered to coordinate our campsite we will NOT HAVE any group meals or games at our campsite this year.  Hopefully we will have more help next year.

URGENT!: If you are planning on camping (RV or tent) at the Harvest Hoedown please let me know so I can reserve the sites so we can all camp together.  I need to hear from you ASAP.  Please send me an email ( letting me know you will be camping and when you plan to arrive.  Thank you.
