            I hope everyone's Christmas was a truely merry one and are

all ready to start the new year on a high note. Please make a point of

attending all our dances and go to as many visitations as you

possibly can. Remember, most of you have to drive only as far as

a meeting place where you will be picked up by a carpool driver.

            Don't forget to bring your aluminum cans and plastic soda

& water bottles. We are still collecting and recycling them.

            I want to thank everyone who makes a point of attending our

membership meetings and the "Star Visitors" who were recognized

by me in the Christmas letter. It would be great to have everyone at one

time or another participate in these activities.

            We have an enthusiastic square dance class of about 8-10 students.

We usually have 3-4 squares at the classes. Angels are always welcome.

Make a point of attending the 1/2 way dance so that you could see for

yourself just how well the class is progressing.

            On February 5th we are starting a new round dance class. Spread the

word and come down to learn this fun activity.

            Happy January Birthday to John (7th), Donna & Vonda (11th),

Irene (15th), Toni (25th), and Gloria (30th).

            We have an anniversary to celebrate, Michael & Ella's 7th

on the 6th.

Other Important Information

            First, I want to thank everyone who worked very

hard to make our anniversary dance a success. Everyone

who came early and the kitchen crew did a great job. I heard

nothing but good comments.

            At the February dance we will serve sandwiches &

anything chocolate, so club members are asked to bring

one of these items. In the kitchen we will have Kathy, Dee, Alice,

& Mardie under Bobbi's supevision.  

            Another club is folding as of this month, the Cypress

Twirlers. It is sad to see long-running clubs disappear one by one.

We must work harder than ever to keep us going. With our rent

going up 400%, we need to do all we can to invite visitors and to attend

all of our own dances every month. Some clubs do return visitations

because they want their banners back. I would like to congratulate our

Star visitors of 2014. The following people attended 10 or more

out of the possible 16 visitations: Judy 16, Jean 15, Don, Marcie &

Jim C. 14, George 12, Marlene, Bonnie & Bill 11, Margaret & Mary 10.

The following members made at least one visitation (in the order of

"frequency") Brenda, Russell, Kitt, Jim W., Elaine, Steve, Mary Ellen,

Christine, Les, Sharon,Toni, Bobbi, Gloria, Jack, Jennifer, John, Teri,

David, Roger, Vicki, Vonda, Elaine, Mardie, Donna, Larry, Ana, Lupe &
Ed. If you don't see your name or if you are among the bottom 10, please

take heart! Please try to make at least 3 visitations in 2015. We do carpool!

            .Thank you all who keep bringing bottles & cans. When we

have a truckload, Roger & I take them down. Every little bit helps

especially in light of the new increased rent.

            A happy February birthday to Margaret & Michael (2nd),

Joan (8th), George (9th), & Ana (26th).

            Happy anniversary to Bobbi & David (28th of the 7th),

Jacques & Ana (59th on the 11th), & Bruce & Yolanda (39th on the 14th).
