As we start the holiday season, please take a moment to think about the men and women of our armed forces who will not be able to spend the holidays with their families. Also, remember the families of the fallen warriors as they spend their holidays without their loved ones. Take the time to thank a vet and thank a vet’s family!
Thank you to all who attended the November Quarterly Business Meeting. There was much business at this meeting, including the presentation of the Nominating Committee for Officers for 2022-2023 and multiple committee reports. If you are interested in serving as a NORTEX officer, please let us know. The Nominating Committee will meet in January to prepare a proposed Slate of Officers to present to the delegates at the February Quarterly Business Meeting.
Lessons have begun for our clubs across the area and some are getting very close to graduating their students. We need to welcome them with enthusiasm. REMEMBER once upon a time, we were all NEW DANCERS. It is very intimidating to be a new dancer and get in a square of experienced dancers – so let’s take them by the hand and welcome them into our world of Square Dancing! Check the Promenade for all the new dancer dances and TAKE your new dancers to all these dances. The only way to gain confidence is to get as much floor time as possible.
Many of our clubs are having special holiday events. These are special times that we share with our dancing family and we look forward to seeing you at one or more of these special events. As 2021 draws to a close and we anticipate the joys of the holidays, we wish for each of you a most blessed Christmas and the happiest and healthiest of new years.
Let’s Do It!
