            At the 1/4 way dance we will serve finger foods. Please bring

the food of your choice. In the kitchen we will have Ella, Ana, & Kitt

under Michael's direction.

            Our bus trip was very successful. Everyone seemed to have a

wonderful time at the dance, the bus ride was smooth, and we made

good time. We will plan for another trip next fall. Thank you Ana for

getting us the bus.

            We have between 11 and 15 new students in our square dance

class. With the angels, we have 4 or 5 squares. We welcome back to

the class Lynne, Dennis, and Jacques. It is so wonderful to know that

they feel well enough to rejoin our ranks as dancers. Hurrah! Thank you

all who keep supporting the class by coming as angels. Boy, do we need

you all! We do miss seeing Bruce, Yolanda, and Neil.

            I am collecting names of those who are interested in learning

to round dance. If you know of anyone, let me know ASAP. If we have

enough interested dancers, we might start a class in January.

            There is a desperate need for a new Regional Treasurer. The job is

very easy but the vacancy needs to be filled. If you can do it, let Toni or

me know.

            We were very sorry to hear that Bonnie's son passed away

last month. We would like to express our deepest sympathy to Bonnie.

            Happy November Birthday to Mary Ellen (8th), Teri (22nd) &
Neil (24th).

            Happy 36th Anniversary to Bill and Margaret on the 25th.

A VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!

Other Important Information

            At our December dance we will serve Christmas goodies

so bring anything red and green or appropriate for Christmas. In

the kitchen we will have Marcie, Jim C., Marlene, Donna, & Larry

under Russell's leadership.

            The Christmas party will be pot luck and we will eat at

6:00. We need help from men to set up the tables, etc. in the

rec room at the Mobil Home Park. If you can come early, it will

be greatly appreciated since the tables are too heavy for Marlene

and me to move by ourselves.

            Remember your membership dues. They are still $20.00

plus $7.00 for the newsletter if you wish to receive a printed copy.

If you get it online, it will be sent to you free.

            It is wonderful to see so many of you at our membership

meetings which is the first Sunday every month before class. But

we always see the same people there. It would be wonderful to see

a few "new" faces each month. You should all try to get involved in

the decisions we make and show an interest in how it all comes

together. If you have not attended a meeting, try to resolve to attend

at least one every year. It's really painless!

            Joan has not been around lately and she has been missed

very much. For those of you who don't know it, she is seriously ill

awaiting drastic treatments. (FYI: Joan has been a member of our

club for over 35 years.) We all hope, Joan, that you will be back

with us soon.

            Happy December birthday to Ed (3rd), Jean (18th), Jack (20th),

and Lynne (30th). There are no anniversaries to celebrate this month.
