March 2015 Dances

Friday, the 13th will be our combined Black Cat and St. Patricks Day dance.  The very fun black cat portion of the dance has someone dressed as a black cat going around to all the squares while the lights are out and only black light is on for a few of the dances. Wear a bit of white so we can find you in the dark. White gloves help the dancers a lot. You can also wear green for the St. Patricks day theme. Seems like those green and white Single Tree colors would work just right.

Terry Halley will be the caller for this dance - a good singer/caller with some excellent music. We are also glad to have Christina Corelli as our cuer for the evening. And members, please remember those finger foods for the break.

Friday, March 27th Lennie Ludiker will be our caller and Jackie Gale will do the cueing. This will make for a really fun dance!

Other Dances:

March 7th - Danebo Circle 8 is 65 years old - join them in this special dance with pre-rounds at 7:30 pm and mainstream starting at 8:00 pm. Roger Putzler is the caller and Christina Corelli is cueing.

March 14th the Whirl-A-Ways will be hosting a "partial" new dancer dance. Plus will start at 7:30 pm. At 8:00 pm there will be an hour of new dancer level. For the rest of the evening, mainstream and new dancer level will alternate. This is themed as a "pajama dance" so interesting PJ outfits will be on many dancers. This could be really fun - give it a whirl!

March 28th is a Single Trees visitation night. Check the visitation schedule from the menu bar.

George Hermann 2013
Members, please bring food before 6:30 pm, if you can, so we can set it out and start the potluck on time. We will need lots of main dishes and salads and some finger foods as well and a few desserts. We will be needing lots of assistance that night for setup and cleanup, so let Sharon know what you will be able to do.  Gaynor has sent an email regarding that to those members who have emails.

And anyone else who is attending for the dinner, if you would like to bring a potluck dish, we would really appreciate it since several of our members are recovering from surgery and are unable to attend.
