15th - Special Dance featuring Dan Nordbye as caller, sponsored by Danebo Circle 8. This is always a terrific dance! 7:30 pm is pre-rounds and 8:00 pm is mainstream. So polish up your shoes and come on down for a great time.

We had a great time at our 50th birthday and sweetheart dance and enjoyed the company of lots of visitors from other area (and further away) clubs.  Thanks to all who attended to help us celebrate our landmark club birthday.
