Happy Times Squares Family,

Our December Dance, The Reason for the Season, was held on an unusually warm evening for December in Kansas at the wonderful dancing facilities at the UMC West Campus, December 12.  We had 53 HTS members and 12 guests.  Judy Broers and Vernon Nelson did wonderful jobs of cuing our lines and rounds.  Vic Perry was in fine form calling our tips and added some extra Christmas fun with a dance that had moves in it I’ve never experienced.  He had everyone laughing as if he were a Santa spreading around some HO HO HO laughter.  If you were not with us, you’ll have to ask about the new dance. :-)

We could use some more Angels at our Monday night lessons for new dancers at the Centenary UMC in North Lawrence at 7-9 p.m.

2016 is quickly coming and it’s time to pay your $35 per person dues.  You can pay them at the lessons, at our New Year’s Eve or January dances, or mail them Ernie & Jan Dyer at 2835 Missouri, Lawrence, KS 66046.

Thanks to our 2015 HTS Club Officers and Committee Chairs that are in the front of our Club Directory. It takes a lot of volunteers to make our Club operate successfully.

Welcome to our 2016 Officers who were installed into office at our post-dance meeting last night:  They are Presidents Pat & Jim Wells, 1st VPs Betty & Frank Alexander, 2nd VPs Robilea Swindell & Jerry Feese and Robin & Bill Wood, Treasurers Barbara & Dave Neff and Ivey & Don Harris, and Secretaries Lois & Stan Zaremba.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and the best in 2016! .
