Dear Dancing Friends,

As I write this article, DFW is waiting for winter storm Viola to arrive. We have experienced record setting cold temperatures; lots of snow and ice and power outages. A winter we will not soon forget, but I am sure ready for spring!

At our email quarterly business meeting on February 21, the 2021-2022 NORTEX Nominating Committee presented their report. You will find the recommended slate of officers on page 6 of this issue of the Promenade. I thank the Committee for attending the Zoom meeting and for serving on this critical NORTEX committee. We will have elections at our April 18 meeting. At this time, we do not know if it will be indoors or by email.

Ray Savell, NTCA President, has been sending information about SSD, Social Square Dancing, to NORTEX Officers and Club Presidents. NTCA is proposing we use this new method at regular dances and at lessons. If you have not seen the information, please contact your club president.

March will be a busy month as more people get COVID-19 vaccine shots, daylight savings time begins (spring forward) March 14, St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated, spring begins March 20, Passover begins March 27 and Palm Sunday is March 28. Stay warm until spring gets here.

A kind word can make someone’s day.

Yellow Rocks,
