Letter from the President:

Letter from the President:
We're off to a great start for a year. The weather is so perfect for dancing and our bands are all so terrific! But
please remember to bring your friends to contra. You never know who is going to become the next regular. I have
always been surprised by who goes just once and who loves it forever.
Don't forget about the second Saturday dances. The East Spokane Grange is such a great venue and with the
potluck at the break, it's a great opportunity to visit with and get to know the people you've been dancing with on
Wednesdays.
See you at the dance
