This is a special evening to honor our recently departed dancer Jimmy Boyer. He was a good friend, an excellent dancer, and will be dearly missed. We will honor Jimmy by expanding our normal Contra dance evening with a pot luck dinner and a sampling of other dance styles and songs that Jimmy loved.
NTTDS will cover all costs for this evening. THERE IS NO ADMISSION CHARGE.
We will have a box for people who want to make donations. The money will be sent to our parent organization CDSS to add to their scholarship funds in memory of Jimmy. Those funds are used to help defray the costs of people attending the national CDSS programs. CDSS is a 501(c)(3) organization, so the donations are tax deductible.
As a remembrance of Jimmy, please wear either a t-shirt with a funny saying, a shirt from a dance camp, or a Hawaiian shirt.
This invitation is open to everyone - new dancers as well as those who knew Jimmy.

6:30 Tribute to Jimmy begins (let Sylvia know if you would like to share a story - [masked])

The Third Saturday contra dances are at the First United Lutheran Church, 6202 Mockingbird Lane, about 8 blocks east of Central Expressway, between Skillman and Abrams, on the South side of Mockingbird, across the street from Luby's. We're in the school building directly behind the sanctuary building.
NO experience is needed. We walk through every dance before doing it to the music.
NO partners are needed. We encourage everyone to change partners frequently.
