Dear Friends,

I hope that you weathered the storm last weekend with no problems. We left town for a calling date in Yakima so missed the whole thing. Except the rain driving both ways over the pass.

Good dancing Thursday night! Everyone is doing great. Learning to square dance is all about listening and responding. The more repetitions the easier it becomes.
