Our members and guests had a fabulous time camping and dancing during the
4th weekend of April at Theme World in Davenport, FL. We had 12
member couples and 4 guests attending. One guest couple was from the
Allemanders and the other guests were very good friends of our activities
chairpersons, Jim and Laureen Kelly.
The weekend was hosted by George and Sandy Oakes, along with helpers Dale
and Bobbie Collins. They always give us a weekend to remember! Friday
night's after-party was such an event - they had an ice-cream social for us,
setting out an array of wonderful and delicious toppings for the ice cream.
Also thanks to Sarah Pergrossi, our caller's wife, who provided a scumptious
cake to celebrate our April birthday celebrants, of which Sarah was one; as
was George Oakes and our President Nancy Fournier and our Cuer, Jan
Shankle! Our Saturday morning breakfast was another occasion where the
danish and muffins hit the spot! Thank you, hosts and hostesses!
Our early arrivals on Thursday were treated in the evening to watching a
video on the Kelly's outdoor flat TV screen. On both Friday and Saturday,
some of our men went golfing.
Both our Friday and Saturday dances were high-level fun and enjoyment. And
you know, they were also filled with high-level laughter! Thanks to Charlie
Pergrossi for having a workshop on Saturday afternoon. Those of us who
attended came away with some new insights regarding our dancing techniques.
I want to end with a personal thank you to Charlie for honoring my request
to add a new singing call to his record repertoire. You did a great job,
Charlie, it was some Beautiful Noise!
