Club Chair Report Chris Howard
|April 10: Border City Squares
moved north to the Mill-A-Round dance hall in Manchester
for our April Plus level dance. Frank Lescrinier and
Marilyn Rivenburg called and cued for this dance and
provided a most entertaining evening for all who attended.
With 12 dancers signing in for the Tech Squares
retrieval, 14 from Heel & Toe for their retrieval,
and 20 dancers from BCS we had a pretty good turnout
considering the dance was held on Easter weekend
Debbie Coit was the host for the dance and chose "Disney" as the theme. Frank Lescrinier took full advantage of the theme to play lots of Disney music. He also made sure Debbie, as an April birthday girl, didnt forget the theme she had chosen. He presented her with several Disney gifts including a pair of fluffy Pooh Bear slippers. Thanks to Wayne and Priscilla, Tammy, and Steve for coming to the dance early to help with setup.
Our next club dance will be on May 8th, and this will be a Mainstream level dance with two plus tips. Suptei Rogers will be calling and Phil Gatchell will be cueing for this dance. We hope to see all our newly graduated members at this dance. Setup for the dance will be at 12:30 at the Infant Jesus Church. Any help we can get will be greatly appreciated

Class Chair Report Steve White
|I am happy to report that we welcomed
11 new members into our club on April 19th!! The
fun and festivities of graduation were enjoyed by all. I
also want to thank all of our angels for helping the
class out during the year. And a big thank you to all
those who have assisted me with setup and take down each
week. I couldn't have done it without you.
I would also like to highlight the fact that 7 of our new club members were in attendance at the New England Square and Round Dance Convention the weekend after they graduated. Everyone appears to have had a great time and several of them even danced in the FastTrack Hall. Their confidence and ability is a good reflection on our teacher, Patty, and our club. We received several positive comments from fellow dancers about our new club members and their dancing abilities.
Thanks again for a great year!! See you all in a square soon.

Border City Squares - Board of Directors 2003/2004
|Vice President||Bruce Roberts|
|Club Chairperson||Chris Howard|
|Banner Chairperson||Harli Webb|
|Publicity Chairperson||Skip Guild|
|The board discussed the
price issue in great length before making the difficult
decision to raise our 2004-2005 dues. Club dues help to
defray the following expenses: insurance coverage through
NSSARDA, monthly newsletters, postage, advertising and
flyers to other clubs promoting our club dances. We pay $175.00
for our Saturday night use of the hall at Infant Jesus
Church. It will increase to $200.00 in the fall. We had
to raise the cost of our monthly club dance to $6.00 to
help cover this rising cost. If anyone knows of a less
expensive place to hold our monthly dances, please let
the board know. If you have any questions, please see any
of the board members.
