As we continue the holiday season in December we find ourselves sharing our favorite recipes, decorating our homes, and attending special dances and events. Christmas, Hanukkah and other religious holidays will help bring the spirit of giving to the less fortunate. It’s a time to appreciate all of our fellow men and women and promote good will to all.
Thanks to all who attended the November 6th NORTEX Quarterly Business Meeting. We appreciate your enthusiasm and cooperation as the delegates take care of the business of the association. The NORTEX Nominating Committee was appointed. Those individuals are responsible for selecting a slate of candidates for NORTEX 2017 – 2018, to be presented and approved by the delegates. Keep in mind, this organization would not exist without all the volunteers making it run smoothly. Anyone interested in serving in an elected NORTEX office should submit a letter of intent. The letter should be sent to us with a copy to each of the Nominating Committee members. Please include your name, address, phone number, email address, home club name, how long you have been dancing, and the different club offices and committee chairs you have held, and please provide a picture. Provide any additional information that will help the committee choose the best candidate for the office. Your letter of intent should be mailed before December 31 so the committee will have sufficient time to process your request. If you would like to help support NORTEX by working on other committees or an appointed office please let us know, by sending an email to president@NORTEX.org. The Nominating Committee will meet on Sunday, January 22, 2017, at 2pm.
The USO will be celebrating their 75th birthday this year and we are going to help them celebrate. Come and help us support this great organization on December 4th at Swingtime Center. This event will be hosted by NORTEX & NTCA with 100% of the proceeds will go to the USO. Last year our contribution to the USO was over 10,000 dollars, let’s make this one just as good or even better. Remember the USO supports the men and women who protect our freedom and keep us safe.
As we approach the New Year, many of our clubs are having special holiday events. We have enjoyed working and dancing with you this year and we look forward to the year ahead. As 2016 draws to a close and we prepare for the holidays, we wish for each of you the happiest and most joyful holiday and a prosperous and healthy New Year.
Again, thanks for sharing your club newsletters and keeping us informed about all yours activities. Remember our clubs will be starting new lessons. Please support these clubs. We appreciate the dedication of our callers, angels, club officers and NORTEX members.
As always we look forward to more of those magic moments when we can get together and: “Dance, It’s Entertainment, it’s Fun!”
