Dear Members,

It is once again time for our December Dinner/Dance Wounded Warrior Fund Raiser.  This year we will once again be doing a silent auction for items you donate.  The proceeds will go directly to two Wounded Warrior Projects in the local area.  Please bring with you the night of the dance (Dec 6th) any items we can auction to provide funds for these important activities. 
In addition, this year we are asking if you do not have an item to donate for the auction to donate a tax free cash donation.  All cash received will go thru our treasurer and will be distributed  equally between the two projects.  
This year’s dance USA Dance will provide the meat for the dinner and you are welcome to bring a side covered dish.  Last year’s dinner/dance was a great success and the meal was fantastic.  This year should be no different. This is for a great cause. It would cost you three times the cost of entrance to go to a restaurant and eat this fantastic meal. 
As you may or may not know our Sect Dr. Paulette Harris-Holmes and her husband were in a serious automobile accident recently.  Paulette will be ok but after a fight for his life her husband Audie Holmes passed last evening at Georgia Medical Center.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Paulette as she moves forward after this tragedy. All of us at USA Dance and community will miss Audie very much.
Thank you and please take time out to thank God for all the blessings he gives us each and every day.  We at USA Dance give thanks to all the soldiers that have given their all so we can enjoy these blessings.   
Please schedule this dinner/dance to show your support as well.
Thank you and look forward to seeing you Dec 6 at the American Legion Post 63 for our USA Dinner/Dance and Wounded Warrior Fundraiser.
