From the President:

Dear Members and Friends,
    Thank you to all who supported our First Saturday Dance in March. The Mardi Gras theme made for great fun. Of course, it was only possible with the help of volunteers who decorated, collected admission, prepared the music, brought food, and assisted with clean up. A special thank you to Bionca Davis and her Lindy Hop group for the demonstration.
    Congratulations to our volunteer of the month for March, Carlos Ortiz, for his work with the decorating committee, fundraiser, and veterans.
