This will probably be my last blether of 2016 - it's been an amazing year, there have been sad moments, we don't forget the friends we lost this year, but there have also been many happy memories; The committee has organized and hosted their usual collection of fabulous events, some of them 'firsts', at least in my lifetime at the society; we've gained many new friends and will be regaining several again next year, who for one reason or another hadn't made it back to us during 2016.
The constant thread throughout has been the Tuesday class & social - we are now at the stage when we have to restrict the number of tables put out to accomodate more sets, and to be told over and over again by people coming to the class (whether they are dancers or not) that it is the highlight of their week (as it is for me too) is both immensely gratifying and a terrifying responsibility! :-) .
I have just been preparing new registration lists, new membership forms (they are now downloadable from the membership page HERE), I'm doing the dance programme for our first 2017 class and also the tickets for our Burns Night at the Elea which will be the usual sell out by the looks of things. Members have first shout for tickets but guests can book from Tuesday 10th at our first 2017 dance class or by e-mailing Irene (see the contact page). There are lots more things to say - next year we have the International Branch visiting Paphos - their website is HERE if you are interested - and some lovely events planned so 2017 is going to be an exciting year for us all so I hope everyone has a lovely time in what is left of 2016 and I look forward to seeing you all soon.
