Welcome to NORTEX

Kevin and Christine

Fall is in the air.  The weather is getting cooler, and the leaves are starting to turn.  Most importantly, time is getting close to Callers’ Cavalcade at Swingtime Center on the 29th (Oct).  Please make every effort to come out and support our callers and cuers.

Some great news, with Round-Up being cancelled, some callers got together for an impromptu dance on the 30th at Senter Park (not Senter Park East) in Irving.  See the ad on Page 34.  There will be lots of opportunities to dance at multiple levels.  This is another great opportunity to experience some great dancing.

The NORTEX Business Meeting is scheduled on Sunday, November 7, 2021 at Swingtime Center at 2:00 p.m.  We hope to see all the club delegates in attendance, and we encourage all NORTEX dancers to come be a part of this meeting.  The agenda will be printed in the November issue of the Promenade.

The committees that were appointed at the August quarterly meeting have been working diligently.  We are looking forward to their reports at the November meeting.  When you see any of these dancers, please express your appreciation for the time and efforts on behalf of the dancers and clubs of NORTEX.

We are excited about the number of students in lessons throughout the metroplex.  We want to encourage each and every dancer to make room in your square for these new dancers.  We were all new dancers once.  So let’s help make their transition from lessons to club dancing as fun and exciting as possible.  Make every effort to attend the new dancer dances and graduations.  We need to make these new dancers feel like a part of our dancing family.

Soon many of our clubs will be putting together their own nominating committees, and just as in NORTEX, there are many opportunities to serve within your own club.  Clubs need leadership to continue.  Everyone should consider taking a turn to help their club.  If the duties are shared – no one person has to shoulder the leadership load.  In order for a club to survive, the club NEEDS members who are interested and willing to take leadership positions.  If you are able and willing to serve, let your club know.  SHARE THE RESPONSIBILITIES.  Don’t let your club down; it NEEDS YOU.

Let’s Do It!
