I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Ed for all his work this year with the club! I hope you enjoy your summer Ed! It’s been a fun year!

Welcome back from Convention! I’m writing before the weekend but I know we all had a really great, fun, dancing, socializing weekend! Met up with many old friends and created many new friendships! Friendship set to music indeed!

Summer Program

We start our summer program the first week of May!! We will be workshopping mainstream and having a lot of fun too! Don’t forget, also, May 5 is when the price of admission goes up to $5 per person. We will

be dancing every Monday throughout the summer with the exception of Memorial Day, May 26, 2003.

Upcoming Dances

Don’t forget our 45th Anniversary Dance is on May 10th!! Come be a part of the fun! There will be dancing for all! Don’t forget to bring FOOD please. Also, the day before that, May 9th is Cloudbuster’s final dance. There are some going if you’d like a ride just let me know!

Still looking for a summer party location, see me with ideas! Thanks!

The next board meeting will be Thursday, May 22 at 7PM at Anne-Marie Boucher’s home. As always, the meetings are open to all club members. Please see me prior to the meeting if there is anything you would like to have discussed at the meeting.

April 5, 2003: We were supposed to raid Concord Coach but due to a snow storm, the dance was cancelled. The snow was enough to cause most clubs to cancel their dances!

April 12, 2003: BCS hosted Turkey Town Trotters for a raid and Concord Coach for a raid. Fourteen dancers came from Concord Coach and thirteen came from Turkey Town Trotters.

April 19, 2003: BCS raided Heel and Toe in Manchester, NH. This was a mainstream/ plus dance with our own Patty Greene calling and Phil Gatchell cueing.

June 7, 2003: BCS will be raiding Concord Coach in Concord, NH. Ted Lizotte will be calling and Doris T-Bow will be cueing. This will be a Mainstream/Plus dance.

June 21, 2003: BCS is planning to go to Wolf Rockers. Whether this will be a raid or retrieval is yet to be determined. This is a Mainstream/Plus dance with Ted Lizotte calling and Bernie Porter cueing. (This is Wolf Rockers annual ice cream social!!! Come and dance with your ice cream… it CAN be done!!)

This will end the Border City Square Dance Club 2002-2003 dance season.

Please note that the carpool leaves the Kiosk at the Nashua Mall, Broad St., Nashua at 7PM for each of these raids and retrievals. Please sign up on Monday nights or call me if you are planning to attend any raids or retrievals ESPECIALLY if you are interested in the carpool.

Club Mascot

Was looking thru club history papers/club dance flyers and found mention of the Border City Squares Corvette? Apparently it was like a club mascot? and a visiting club could get it if they brought 4 squares - does anyone have more info about this? know anyone who does? does it still exist? I got a little bit of info from Anne Reczko but would like to have more thanks
