Line dancing

“Over and over we talk about the great town we live in, but it is the people who make it so special. How do you thank friends for providing dinners, taking time to visit or phone with good wishes? And what about the special ladies giving their time to keep the line dance program going?

“All of these things take a lot of time and effort, and I simply do not have the words to say how much I appreciate all of your support. Thank you so very much!”

“One working foot is not nearly as good as two.” — Gerri.
