Spring has arrived with the renewal of nature’s life and some dancing in North Texas is resuming with Swingtime Center opening April 1. We all hope that as more people get vaccinated, we will see dancing venues open for our use throughout the Metroplex.
The next NORTEX Quarterly Business Meeting is at Swingtime Center on Sunday, April 18, 2021 at 2:00 PM. This meeting includes the election of the 2021-2022 NORTEX officers. The Nominating Committee has pre- sented their slate of officers but remember that nomina- tions for the elected officers can be made from the floor with the consent of the nominee (who must also meet the qualifications for the office). Also, at this meeting, the next year’s budget will be presented for approval. Several reports will be given, including tentative plans for Installation and Round-Up. I look forward to seeing you at the meeting. Please see the preliminary agenda on page 7 of this Promenade.
We will be observing pandemic safety protocols at the April meeting; masks will be required, chairs will be placed six (6) feet apart (except for couples), and there will be no food or drinks served. We ask that you also refrain from hugging or handshakes. While many dancers are now vaccinated and the State has discontinued mask mandates or capacity requirements, we still need to do our best to eliminate exposure to this terrible virus so we can enjoy gathering without fear.
With the reduction in COVID-19 cases and some restart- ing of dancing in North Texas, we will move forward with plans for the 2021 Round-Up. At the April meeting, more information will be provided, so we can plan on a great weekend, with Callers Cavalcade on October 29 and Round-Up on October 30.
Stay Safe and Happy Easter!!
