    Now for the dancing THIS WEEK in our area!
    On Thursday the 21st, The Quadra Dangle Club in Laramie will feature Bryan Nolde doing mainstream at 7:00pm.
    Friday the 22nd the dancers in the Oregon Trail Club will welcome you to their dance at the IOOF Club in Gering.  Lucky Kochenower will call and cue the dance that begins at 6:30 with a ½ hour of plus dancing.
    On Saturday the 23rd LaVern will welcome Dave Guille and Leroy Shade to the Red Rock Ramblers stage in Lyons.  Leroy is retiring and moving to Arizona so he won’t be cueing our dances in the future.  His departure is a huge loss to our round dance community. He has been a major part of our round dancing over the years and will surely be missed by all.  Leroy, we all wish you a super happy retirement. Remember the dance in Lyons now begins at 7:00pm.
    On Sunday the Ponderosa Promenaders will celebrate their 8th Anniversary.  Wow, 8 years already and still going stronger then ever!  Club caller Mark and club cuer Mitchell will be on hand for your dancing pleasure.  They are graduating a brand new class this week, so come meet the newest dancers in our council area.
    Also on Sunday the Oregon Trail dancers with Lucky will dance.  They dance on this Sunday each month at the Old 4H Hall in Kimball NE. If you are lucky enough to dance with this club and Lucky, well then, I guess your are lucky enough!
    I understand that our festival in Denver was a great success, lots of fun and good food too!  Many thanks to the 2018 Festival Committee for their hard work in presenting a quality program for our dancers.
    Hey, who said our clubs go dark in the summer. 
    Have a Magical Week!
    Linda
