  June 2003  


Welcome to Summer! It is unofficially here, officially before the month is out! I’d like to thank everyone that was involved in making the Anniversary Dance such a great success! Everyone had a great time! Thank YOU!

We will be having a club summer fun pool party at Chris and Norma Howard’s home on August 23rd! Stay tuned for more details! Thank you for the use of your home!

Summer dance program appears to need revamping. We will start next week with the all position Mainstream workshop plus some fun interesting things such as 2 and 6 couple squares later in the evening. The workshop will run 7:00 to 9:30! This will all be

open to Mainstream dancers! It is just different ways of having fun! It is unfortunate that we no longer have a January class but this is where we are. I would love to see lots of faces having fun this summer! Don’t forget to come dancing during the summer!

The next board meeting will be Sunday, June 29, 2003 at 2 PM at Chris Howard's home. The change over meeting/party will start at 11 am with the grill and pool open. Please bring an outdoor chair, whatever sort of meat you'd like to have and something to share. 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.

Happy Dancing!

May 10 – Border City Squares 45th Anniversary Dance. Vivian & Bill Thompson and Mary & Dave Raymond were hostess/host’s for this dance. They did a fantastic job decorating the hall for this special dance. We want to especially thank the decorating committee, which included Vivian Thompson, Mary Raymond, Anne-Marie Boucher, Cheryl Palucchi, Tami Dorris, Paula Finamore and Cecelia Kendig who spent weeks prior to the dance meeting to make the decorations. We also want to thank all of those club members who helped with the setup of not one but two halls, including Chris Howard, Wayne & Priscilla Griffin, Paula Finamore, Pauline O’Connor, Debbie Coit, Penny Guild, Steve White, Preston Walsh and Tami Dorris and those who stayed and helped take down those same two halls. We also were very proud of our food table for this dance. There was so much great food and very little was left at the end of the night to be taken home.

We had a great turn out which included the most callers assembled on one stage performing at the same time that anyone I spoke to can every remember. These included Jim and Joann Mayo, Joe and Phyllis Casey (Jim and Joe were the callers for the evening), Bob and Norma Silva, Phil and Sandi Gatchell (Norma and Phil were our cuers for the evening), Ray and Carol Aubut, Johnny and Barbara Wedge, Patty and Steve Greene, Ray Hilton, May ‘Yikes’ Cameron and Dave Lamoureaux. We also had both presidents from EDSARDA, Bob and Louise Griffin, and NSSARDA, Bob and Barbara Graybill in attendance.

Clubs in attendance included Heel and Toe with 21 members; Single Squares with 12 members; Pepperell Squares with 9 members; 35 guests and Border City Squares with 41 members, which included two of our newest class members who were able to join in the dancing and did very well. Everyone we spoke with had a great time and enjoyed reminiscing about old times.

Our next dance is Saturday, June 14 with Tami Dorris as the hostess and the theme is January in June. This is a mainstream dance with 2 plus tips and our caller will be Johnny Wedge with Marilyn Rivenburg cueing. Setup time will be at 12:30 pm on Saturday for anyone who would like to help. We appreciate all the help from those who take time from their Saturday to come help.
