CENTRAL IL SOCIAL DANCE SCENE
Did y'all have a good time and stay sober?
I had a real good time with SISTER GROOVE at The Parke Hotel. Their buffet table was wonderful... filling and then their dessert selection was TO DIE FOR!!!
The DJ and the band kept several decades of music coming to us and kept us on the floor...

I just wanted you to know we have scheduled a GREAT band for our dance Jan. 16 that I'm sure you will really enjoy...DAN RIVERO TRIO (Bill will be in CA). I'll attach flyers and would appreciate it if you help get the word out.
Pat Lyttaker's next round of lessons ($20 for six 1 hour lessons) at the Eagles Club in Springfield will begin Jan. 20th. I'll have info you can pick up at our dance and perhaps arrange to carpool. The location is on the east side of Spgfd and car-pooling makes it even more fun!
Don't forget the dance in Tuscola this Saturday. There's lots of dancing going on in Illiopolis, too. Check out dancingdates.com for dance information/cancellations. If our dance has to be cancelled due to weather, I'll contact dancingdates.com. I'll probably leave a message on my phone by noon that Sunday also...217-875-3090. I sure hope the weather cooperates!!!
Keep on dancin'!!!
