Contrary to Popular Opinion: A Blog
Dear Devoted Dancers,
I want you to know that I am trying my hardest to avoid alliteration.
Update on the sound system: we've purchased a new mixer with the funds we've been able to fundraise so far. It had it's debut at last night's dance and we are so pleased to finally be able to project the wonderful sounds of our musicians from the speakers again! This was the most imperative improvement for the system but we have other needs that we are hoping to address as well: more microphone stands, and some cabling and accessories to generalize. As such, raffle ticket sales are still very important as we continue to raise funds to get our sound system in top working order.
We are planning on participating in the Rt. 11 Yard Crawl on August 13. I'm still waiting to hear back from the place we used last year but if you or someone you know lives on Rt. 11 north of Harrisonburg and would be willing to let us use part of the front yard for our yard sale, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or talk to Reilly at a dance.
We're also looking for some volunteers for the yard sale, either help setting up on the evening of August 12 or for a couple hour shift on August 13. Let us know if you're interested!
The survey is still on! Please take a couple minutes to give us some feedback about your thoughts and experiences with our local dances. The link to the survey can be found here and on the Shenandoah Valley Contra Dance and Monday Night Facebook groups. You only need to complete the survey once and your response is invaluable! Thanks for your help with this!
Check out our new website at shenandoahvalleycontradance.weebly.com. The purpose of this website is for it to be a resource for information about our dances and our non-profit organization. Newsletters and some photography will be posted there as well.
Finally, the first Dayton Dance is just around the corner! We'll be dancing the night away to music by Go Figure on Saturday, September 10. Mark your calendar!
We are so glad you're part of this dance community and love seeing you at the dances!
