There will be regular Friday dancing on July 8. July 22 is during the Macedonian Festival, so we may hold dancing at the festival. Check with one of us before going to the Meeting House. After that date, the next Friday dancing will be after Labor Day.

In general, we meet on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month, except for May, November, and December, when we meet on the 1st and 3rd Fridays to avoid end-of-month holidays. There may also be infrequent other exceptions.
