St. John's Lutheran Church's Activity Center
at 300 Jefferson St in downtown Algonquin.
The doors open at 7:15pm
FREE 'Fox Trot' DANCE LESSON
starts at 7:45pm
Wow! We really had a wonderful array of fantastic costumes at the “Spook-Tacular Salsa” dance! So much creativity was put in making the costumes. The judging was very difficult because the costumes were so original.
The First Prize Winner was Gloria Biard and Gerry Vasquez. Second prize went to Russ and Diane Ward, third prize winner was Rose Englebrecht & Ben. Fourth prize went to Primo and Lucy Idellapina.
GOOD DANCE MUSIC IS A MUST
DJ Dr. Rod and Gail’s mix of ”spooky” music sure kept the dance floor burning! Without good music it would be very challenging to have a good dance!
A SPIRIT OF COMMUNITY APPRECIATED
Many thanks to those who helped make the dance a success with setup and breakdown, decorating, kitchen help, or bringing snacks: Dan Medina, Beth Christiansen, Jim Krein, Rose Englebrecht, and Judi and Peter Spizzirri.
