Florida Federation of Square Dancers
President's Message

May 2020

What a Month! All Dancing has been cancelled as has most of everything else in our day to day lives.  Thirty days of stay at home orders.  When you do have to go out, you wear a mask and gloves and stay six feet from other people. No paper goods on the shelves.  Limits to how much of a product you can buy.  At the time of this writing, future guidelines are changing day to day.  Please follow all guidelines and stay safe and well.
Now that the 2020, 66th State Convention is in the books, we can take a big breath and a little vacation.  NOT!  The 2021 67th State Convention chairs Richard and Carole Douget are nailing down the final details of their convention. And the 2022, 68th Convention chairs are in a tizzy to get started.  Who are the Convention chairs for 2022 you ask?  None other than the current Florida Federation of Square and Round Dance Association Board, Linda Tester, Ed Drexel and Terry Wetherby, Terry Little, Cal and Ann Maki and Barbara and Brian McDonald.   More to come soon.
