Annual General Meeting Tonight!

Please remember to come out to our last dance for this 2011/12 regular season tonight.  This is a Pot Luck supper starting at 6pm, followed by our Annual General Meeting and then regular dancing.  Please all come prepared to stay until 9:30 as we will not be having the mainstream-only part at the end.  We will finish off the evening together.  We hope to keep the meeting as short as possible so as to have more time to dance.

Please remember to bring what you need for eating (plate; utensils; etc). Don’t forget some food too!

We now have a fixed date and time for Warkworth Fair – September 8, Saturday at 12:30pm.  If you can help, please sign up.  We will contact you nearer the time.  Will need names to give to fair people as our dancers will be admitted free.
Please sign up for the Lakefield Farmers’ Market – Thursday, August 16 from 3-5pm.  Both events should be a lot of fun.

Minutes of last year’s Annual meeting have been emailed to members, or you can find them on the Executive page of the website.  Please read and bring a copy with you if possible.  We will only have a limited number of copies available.

Survey results have been distributed as well.  If you have a question about them or didn’t receive a copy please speak to an executive member.

Last, don’t forget to pick up a summer dancing schedule and information about our upcoming barn dance!

See you tonight!
