Dear Members and Friends,
Thank you to all who supported our February 1 First Saturday Dance. As always, 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 Vanessa Russo for offering to provide a Rumba lesson at the last minute.
