Hello Line Dancers and Partner Dancers!                 May 1, 2016

Hello Dee's Country Kickers:    Here's this weeks news.  Hope you can join us!


This past weekend was our mini-vacation/field trip to the Back Roads Saloon in Michigan.  Wow what a fantastic time it sure was.  Just want to take a moment to thank Sally Shock for inviting me to come teach at her Workshop. What a great group of dancers in attendance. It sure was a pleasure working beside my very good friend Frank Trace and the talented Amy Christian I also want to thank the all our students/friends (14 of us) who ventured up there to dance and spend time together!


Weekend Dancing: This coming Saturday, May 7th Jewels Dance Hall is having Next of Kin Band also Amy Auger is having a Night of Dance at the Avon Senior Center from 7-10PM.  This is a great, crowd friend dance event to attend!


Coming up on Friday, May 13th there will be a “Celebration of Life” in Loving Memory of Tom Dodge or as most of knew him as “DIRT” to be held at Painesville Twp. Park Dance.   Doors open at 7:30PM.  We want to honor his love for dancing, his teaching legacy and his friendships to so many.  The plan it to do this around 8PM for anyone that would like to say something.  We want to thank those that have shared photos for the slide show.  There will be a memory board provided by his long time friend Jeannie Nowak if you would like to bring them that day.  We will plan to play several classic oldies in the first hour.
