Happy-Happy New Year! We hope you had a very Merry Christmas and we wish you a healthy and prosperous new year. This is a time for making plans and setting goals, maybe one of those goals would be to get more exercise. What better way to achieve that goal than to dance more. So dance with your club, go visit and support your club’s lessons by being the best ever “Angel”.
With the New Year some of you may be starting new positions in your clubs. Remember that out-going and in-coming officers need to work together for the future success of their club. NORTEX is also beginning its search for new leadership, to begin their term on July 1, 2017. The 2017 NORTEX Nominating Committee will meet on Sunday, January 22, 2017 at Senter Park East in Irving. The proposed slate of officers for the ensuing year will be presented to the delegates at the February 19, 2017 NORTEX quarterly meeting. Other non-elected positions must also be filled in NORTEX ranks as well. We hope that if asked to serve you will give serious consideration to helping. The appointed positions are another way to help not only your club, but all clubs in NORTEX.
The USO Benefit dance was a fantastically successful event hosted by NORTEX & NTCA. Your support of the USO makes a difference to the men and women in the armed forces that keep our nation safe. Our goal was achieved by showing our support and our appreciation to all those who protect our freedom.
The NTCA singing call of the year dance will be held on Sunday afternoon, January 22, 2017 at Swingtime Center. Be sure to join us for this great event. We all want to support the NTCA, they are such talented individuals and they are the reason we enjoy dancing so much in the north Texas area.
Please check the Promenade for lessons that will be starting in the first part of 2017. Lessons are the driving force to keeping square dance, round dance, and clogging clubs growing. We all learn at lessons, some of us learn to be the best ever “Angel” and some of us will improve our own dancing abilities.
Again, thanks for sharing your club newsletters and keeping us informed about all your activities. We appreciate the dedication of our callers, cuers, angels, club officers and all NORTEX members.
As always, remember the rewards of those moments we share together as we:
“Dance, It’s Entertainment, it’s Fun!”
