Got this from a friend, it is for Jimmy Robison a caller from Indiana that most of us have danced to:
We are looking for a wheelchair to borrow or purchase. Jimmy is facing surgery on his spine. He currently can't walk without a walker and a wheelchair would really help us out. Please let me know if you know of a place to get one. Thanks for your help and prayers. Jan (Jimmy's wife).
Let us know if you can help. ;--}

Never let it be said that the Square and Round dance community is anything less than awesome! They are caring, loving and giving. On Sunday our club ( in Kettering, Ohio) sponsored a benefit dance to raise money for the American Cancer Society. We asked for, and received a lot of donations for both silent and live auctions. The real Beauty of those donations is that they came not only from our local dancers, but from other areas of Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, and even Florida. ( I hope I didn't miss anyone). I also saw members from other clubs bringing in food/snacks to share. Four callers and 2 cuers donated their talents for the day...thank you Elaine, Jason, Ken, Stuart, Tom, and Wesley! ( yes, I put them in alphabetical order). In addition, there were two dances donated and auctioned off for a later date.

The last count revealed that 102 Dancers signed in, and we raised over $4,300...yes, that went up. Some of the funds are still being processed. ALL PROCEEDS WERE DONATED to the America Cancer Society.

We are making lists, checking them twice, packing the car, and expecting some more donations to be brought in on Sunday for the auctions (both live and silent). **PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU PLAN TO WRITE A CHECK (tax deductible) for your donation, please make it out to The American Cancer Society.
Absolutely ALL PROCEEDS GO TO THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY. Our callers and cuers have graciously donated their time, and individual Gem City members have donated all snacks and the monies to pay the hall rental.

Please join us for a great afternoon! We are hoping for a full house.
