New Year of NORTEX begins…on July 1st. NORTEX officers and staff please accept our sincere appreciation for all the wonderful help we received during the year 2015-2016. We especially want to thank all our amazing dancers. We appreciate your support for the past year and look forward to another year with new goals. Thanks to each of you who continue to serve so faithfully for the enjoyment of our favorite pastime. NORTEX family with your help we will have another marvelous term dancing our way through the summer: “Dance, it’s Entertainment, it’s Fun”.
We want to thank John and Shirley Currie for a fantastic Installation Dance: “Party On!” The host clubs, Fort Worth Squares, Kissin’ Kuzzins, Log Cabin Swingers, Stone Steppers, Texas Reelers and Tri-City Promenaders did an outstanding job giving us a wonderful evening of dancing. We want to congratulate the award winners: Club of the Year – “Kissin’ Kuzzins”, Couple of the Year – “J.W. & Nellie Kuether” of the Buttons & Bows, and Singles of the Year – “Charles Deckert of the Log Cabin Swingers and Joyce Sellers of the Texas Reelers”. Thanks also to the callers: Wayne Baldwin and Ray Savell and cuer JL Pelton. The dance was a grand event that we all will cherish forever.
Don’t forget about the Round-Up 2016 kick-off dance on Sunday July 10th, 4:30pm at Swingtime Center. This will be the first time we will wear our Round-Up attire. Your Round-Up General Chairs, Ray and Vicki Spray, and their various committee members will get us started in a grand way. Oktoberfest is the theme for Round-Up this year. Get your best Oktoberfest outfits ready, lederhosen optional, it’s your choice. All clubs will have the opportunity to donate items for the Door Prize Room. As usual the donor information will be displayed next to the item. The ideal time to make a club donation would be at a Round-Up committee visitation, but donations will be accepted anytime the club wants to make a donation. Clubs will be informed when the committee members will be visiting. If there are questions contact Ray & Vicki Spray or Debbie Anderson who is coordinating those visitations.
We celebrate our nation’s independence this month. July gives us another opportunity to show our appreciation to our service men and women that protect our freedom. We are truly blessed with our independence and our freedom. It’s another reason to: “Dance, It’s Entertainment, it’s Fun!”
