Thank you!  Thank you! Thank you!
Thank you, MVDC Family and all who traveled from Columbus, Cincinnati, Kentucky and abroad, for coming out in large numbers to support the Wesley Fenton Benefit Square Dance on Sunday, February 3, 2019.

Thank you to all the callers – Wes Dyer, Tom Davis, Travis Cook, Jason Raleigh, Ken Roberts, Jay Fitch, Christy Williams, Janet Smith, and Guest Callers who shared their time and amazing talent.
Thank you, cuers, Linda Bishop and Stuart Lewis for the crowd pleasing rounds!
Thank you, Elaine Wintrow, and the Troy round dance class for donating the proceeds from your practice and taking up a collection for Wesley and Sharon.

Hey, Kristen

“Hey, Kristen!”
“What, mom?”
“Want to see something awesome?”
“Well it depends, what is it?” Kristen says.
I hand Kristen my celery phone and pull up the pics.
Kristen exclaims, “Holy Crackers! Say no more! This must be the MVDC Student Dance called by Ken Roberts and Jason Raleigh at the MSP on Sunday, Dec. 16th!”
“Mom, was this organized by Fred Organ, MVDC VP?”
“Yes, Kristen, we are blessed to be apart of the MVDC Family that Fred, Ken, and Jason are members of too!”
“Wow. It is great! Thanks for sharing this with me, mom. It brings back fond memories of my student days!”
“You are so welcome. It is awesome to see the students enjoying their time at the MSP!!” Colleen exclaims.
(That is what squaring is all about, and all the forms of dance that MVDC offers!)
