Tuckahoe Update 3-6-2018

Regrettably our March 2nd Friday night meetings and dance had to be cancelled due to wind, weather, and loss of electricity at the church. The meetings have been rescheduled to this Friday night, March 9th.

A “HUGE THANK YOU” to Dean Decker for venturing out last Friday late afternoon to check on the situation at All Saints Episcopal Church to find that the electricity in that area was out. I know he got caught in heavy traffic trying to get home, but I am most appreciative for his willingness to weather the storm for us.

Hi Tuckahoe Square Dancers,

We had an awesome square dance last Friday with Jim Kline calling for us. Jim not only called our square dance, he lead the line dancing, too!! He can even cue for rounds if needed. Jim and his wife Kathie are from Wyoming (one of my favorite states!) and came to Virginia to retire!! His motto is “Square Dancing should be FUN” and that’s my motto too! Everyone had a great time dancing to some new calls and having fun. Martha and Tony provided the refreshments and yummy goodies for the evening. If you did not try the Oreo Truffles, you missed an awesome treat….best dessert ever!!  It was a “fun” night for all.  Thanks Jim, Martha and Tony.
