Welcome to NORTEX

It’s hard to believe that this is our last article as NORTEX Presidents. These last 2 years have gone by so fast but have been so rewarding and fun for us. We have enjoyed getting to know you better as we visited your clubs. Thank you for always greeting us with a warm smile and a caring hug.

The new President and Officers for 2019-2020 will be installed on June 2 at Swingtime Center at 4:00 pm. Grand March will be at 5:30 pm. This is a free dance and a “Double Signature” dance. Sam and Mary Stephens, chairs, along with their seven host clubs, are planning a festive afternoon. Good food and gorgeous decorations are a given so please plan to come. Mike Bramlett will call and Jack von der Heide will cue. We will be announcing the “Club of the Year” and “Dancers of the Year”. How exciting this will be for those who are being recognized. It could be you. We extend our congratulations to the 2019-2020 NORTEX President, Debbie Anderson and her officers.

June is when we gear up for Round-Up which will be held on Saturday, October 26 and Callers Cavalcade on Friday, October 25 at the Grapevine Convention Center. Vicki Spray and Peggy Kemp, Round-Up Chairs have been busy planning “Deep In The Heart Of Texas.” The Kick Off Dance will be June 23 at Swingtime. Callers will be Ray Savell and Toby Thomason and Karen Gloodt will cue the Rounds.

Most clubs have scheduled their pre Round-Up themed dances so plan to attend as many as you can.

The next NORTEX Quarterly Business meeting will be August 18 with our new President, Debbie Anderson officiating.

One more time, we would like to thank the past presidents for their guidance and support, our wonderful officers, chairs, all club presidents, delegates, dancers and NTCA. We hope to continue to LIVE TO DANCE AND DANCE TO LIVE. Love you all!
