Dance! NEWS 

Hi Dancers!

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. 


MORE DONORS FOR THE SILENT AUCTION


This weekend is "Thanks for Giving” Dance and Silent Auction!

The auction involves a lot of work getting gift certificates, baskets, and items donated and collected and then putting everything together to make attractive packages. If you have items to donate, gift certificates from your favorite places you patronize, or perhaps are interested in helping us put together baskets, please give me a call 
847-639-8699 or send me an email at jackiepenze@aol.com

Let's share an evening of dancing, camaraderie, & a SILENT AUCTION!


*At every dance we give back to the community. St. John’s Church is so appreciative of our donations to the food pantry. But most of the time specific perishables and/or nonperishable’s are needed. It is easier for their committee to fulfill the needs with cash donations. There will always be a donation jar at the front desk.
