Welcome to NORTEX

 

Now that the holidays are over let’s remember to support our new dancers who recently graduated. Encourage them to visit other clubs and other callers so that they will get the experience they need to give them confidence. Clubs are also starting their Spring lessons so please volunteer to angel these new students. Round Dance lessons are also starting so don’t miss the opportunity to expand your dancing skills or take lessons for the first time. You’ll love it.

The next NORTEX Quarterly Business meeting is set for Sunday, February 17 at Swingtime Center at 2:00pm. We encourage you to join us. It can be very informative. See the agenda in this issue of Promenade. Remember that if you have recently joined a club, you are now part of NORTEX. The nominating committee will be announcing the nominees for 2019-2020 NORTEX officers at this meeting. The delegates will be voting on these highly qualified candidates at the April 7 Quarterly Business meeting. If any of your club members are running for a position, please come and show them your support.

Save the date for the annual USO Benefit Dance on Sunday, March 17, 2019 at Swingtime Center from 4:00-8:00pm. There will be a silent auction, tin can auction & live auction. A big thanks goes to our NTCA callers and cuers for volunteering their talents at this benefit dance and to Ray & Vicki Spray for organizing it. Come and have a fun afternoon and evening with lots of activity.

We would like to wish you all a very happy Valentine’s Day and Presidents’ Day. We want to thank all our officers, appointed officers, committee chairs, club officers, dancers, angels and the NTCA for supporting the activity and giving dancers the opportunity to Live to Dance and Dance to Live.
