As we start a new year, 2018-19, as your presidents, we are excited to get going. Our 2017-18 officers are moving forward with us with one exception. Howard & Glenda Hess will take the baton from Kevin & Christine Hadley for Assistant to the President. Thank you Kevin & Christine for your dedication and help in 2017-18 as Assistant to the President. Kevin & Christine will continue to be Parliamentarian and Archives in 2018-19. We welcome Howard & Glenda to share our wonderful world of NORTEX. We look forward to working with our officers and chairmen for a goal that we all share. Help the NORTEX clubs grow. We also need the help of all of our club dancers.
We want to thank Don & Pam vonMinden for a wonderful Installation on June 3, 2018. We also want to thank the host clubs, Diamond Jubileers, Rebel Rousers, Triangle Squares, Kissin’ Kuzzins & Roadrunners. The callers, Wayne & Jodie Baldwin and Bobby & Dalaina Willis along with cuers, JL & Linda Pelton, were fantastic as usual! We would like to congratulate the Club of the Year, Triangle Squares. We are so proud of you for all you do. Also, congratulations to the Dancers of the Year, George & Cheryl Wilson of Diamond Jubileers and Charles & Anna Wolfe of the Swinging Stars. You are so appreciated!
Yes, we know that this is the July issue but don’t forget the Kick-Off Round-Up Dance on Sunday, June 24 at Swingtime starting at 4:30pm for Rounds and 5:00pm for Squares. The Round-Up staff for this dance as well as Round-Up in October are Mike & D’ Bramlett, callers and Christine & Theron Hixson, cuers. The theme is KALEIDOSCOPE OF COLORS so start getting your colorful outfits ready. The cost will be $6.00 per person or free if you have pre-registered for Round-Up already. We have gone back to the pre-Round Up club dances to get everyone excited about Round-Up in October and to get your colorful outfits ready to wear to these dances. Please remember to donate a door prize when the Round-Up Committee comes to your dance.
We want to wish you a happy 4th of July this month. Be safe this summer and try to stay cool.
Thank you to all of our officers and dancers for your confidence in us for another year with NORTEX. And always remember to “Live to Dance and Dance to Live!”
