Important Dates in April

                  The Funsters have no prerounds this year and

                  squares start at 7:30

Other Important Information

           At the April dance we will serve sandwiches, deviled

eggs, wieners, & fruit so please bring one of those items.

In the kitchen we will have Donna, Larry, Elaine, & Bonnie

under Teri's leadership.

           We made many decisions and had many major

discussions at the March meeting, as I predicted. These

decisions affect all of us. I realize that many of you can't

make these meetings for various reasons so I am wondering

if you would be interested in getting the Minutes e mailed to

you since most of us have e mail. Please let me know if you

are interested enough in our club's activities that you would

like to get the Minutes of each meeting e mailed to you so

that you can at least know what's going on and maybe can

plan to attend or not to attend the next meeting accordingly.

If we have something under "New Business", we usually

continue discussing it at the next meeting.

           Here are a few future dates to put on your calendar:

June 26 graduation

July 10 start of the 6-week workshop in the same format

           as last year (the 1st half plus, the 2nd half DBD)

August 21 the club's summer pot luck at Toni's mobil home

           park (same as last year)

           Just a reminder: visitation is what keeps a club going

because it brings visitors and shows that we care. Please wear

your club badge to all visitations so the host club members can

identify you as San Gabriel Valley B'n'B members. It is a thing

to be proud of, I think.

           Happy April birthday to Bonnie and Les (16th) and

Jennifer (26th).

There are no anniversaries in April.

Other Important Information

            At the May dance we will serve sandwiches, tortilla/nacho

chips and dips, and fruit so please bring one of these items.

In the kitchen we will have Gloria, Mardie, Alice & Don under

Christine's leadership.

            Please put the following dates on your calendar. There

will be more information about each later. I just want to be sure

that you reserve these dates:

June 26  -  Graduation

July 10   - Summer Workshop begins

July 29   - St. Jude benefit dance

July 30  - Knott's Berry Farm

Aug. 21 - Summer pot luck (instead of picnic)

Sept. 11 - New class begins

            We are going to have the same  kind of workshop this

summer as last summer which worked out well. It is a kind of

workshop that EVERYONE can benefit from, not only new graduates.

From 6:30 to 8:00 it will have mainly a plus workshop for new

graduates and brush-ups. But from 8:00 to 9:30 it will be a DBD

(Dance By Definition) workshop where we will work on all position

dancing so if a caller calls something we already know but from a

different position, we will not stand there helplessly because we are

not used to executing a familiar figure from an unfamiliar position.

So plan on attending.

            Reminder - we are still recycling plastic bottles and aluminum

cans. Bring them to the classes or dances & give them to Roger or me.

            I want to ask each and every one of you to please make a

real effort to attend our 2nd Saturday club dances. With our rent going

up again, we can not afford to lose money at our dances like we have

this year. Please help our club survive by attending our dances

whenever you can.

            Happy May birthday to David (4th), Steve (8th), Bobbi (15th),

Elaine (24th), and Roger (27th).

            We have no anniversaries to celebrate in May.
