Schedule update!

Just a heads-up, two of our callers recently discovered schedule glitches, but the good news is, they can simply switch dates! So, Rich Jackson will call for our next dance on April 18th and Miriam Newman will call on May 16th. They are both excellent callers, and we’re glad they were able to make the switch!

Welcome, 2015!

Hi everyone!! Wondering what’s up for 2015? We’re making a few changes to the dance, in response to attendance levels that have been consistently just-slightly-lower-than-what’s-needed to remain solvent.

Biggest change – we will now hold a dance MONTHLY, and every dance will be preceded by a POTLUCK at 6:00 pm. Make a night of it – excellent food, company and dance once a month.

The first dance will be Saturday, January 17th, and it will be one of our “Homegrown Callers” nights; so… WE NEED VOLUNTEER CALLERS! Please respond here or contact Carol Ansel if you are interested in calling a couple of dances, and let us know which ones – we need to know before January 10th so we can get the music choices to Dawn and Bill. (PS – We would like to do another Homegrown on June 20th, pending enough willing callers).

The whole 2015 schedule will be coming out soon – stay tuned!

Thanks for dancing with us, and here’s to a happy, healthy, dance-filled coming year for all.

And we’re off! (Fall dance season has begun)

We had a lovely potluck and dance on the 7th. Orly called some nice dances, and we got a lot of practice at 5-couple dances after the break, since that was just the number of couples we had. For those who wanted Carol’s “cheater” pie crust recipe, here it is:

Sift together 2 c. flour and 1 tsp. of salt. Measure 1/2 c. of vegetable oil and add 5 Tbsp cold water. Pour the water/oil into the flour, and stir with a fork until it forms a ball. Divide into two. Roll each crust out between 2 sheets of waxed paper, peel off top sheet of paper, invert, and place into pie plate. Remove 2nd sheet of paper.

From the Better Homes & Garden Cookbook

Hope to see you all on the dance floor – next dance is Sept. 20 with Miriam Newman.
