So you think you can dance?
By the way, did you hear:
• Gerry Masuda wants more people dancing to the music at the Duncan Farmer’s Market. “The tradition which needs to be established is that, if no one is dancing, dancers compete to see who will have the honour of being the first out to start another round,” he says. If you have any ideas on how to inspire people to step up, please email me at email@example.com.”
• A proud Jean Jordan tells us the recent Walk For Ovarian Cancer raised more than $18,000. Jordan, who is undergoing her second diagnosis of Ovarian Cancer, would like to get a big business to take over the event next year. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
• On the topic successful event, Jen Woike is raving about the Movies in The Park in Crofton series this summer. “The movie choices were fantastic, family oriented with enough action to keep all ages entertained. A couple of lawn chairs, blankets, and snacks from home ( although you could purchase popcorn there if you forgot yours)and a donation was all that you needed,” she said. “Kudos to those organizers for a job well done for a great affordable family night out. We will be back next year!”
