 From David Hillis

Hello dancers,

Now, it wasn't a flock of flamingos on the Serengeti you saw at Live Oak last night!  It was the proudly pink dancers of BFD, standing on two legs at the annual I-Ball.  More details and more pictures in a couple days in the Bulletin . . .


Afternoon alert for next week:  Due to some long-planned programs, Northbrae church will not be available for our Tuesday and Thursday afternoon classes next week, September 25 and 27.


Please join us Saturday, Sept 22, 2:00 p.m. to discuss next year's dance camp at Monte Toyon.  Help us decide what type of dance we want taught and who we want to teach it.  We are also interested in any ideas to improve the weekend.  We are meeting at Judy Stonefield's, 6292 Colby St, Oakland.

Judy and I will be providing treats to keep everyone's energy up.  Call me if you have any questions.

Folk Dance Federation Vice President Marian Snyder, Publicity Chair Marija Hillis, and Parliamentarian Bill Lidicker would like to invite you to the Federation's Octoberfest Officers Ball in Pleasanton on Saturday, October 20.  Marija will be one of the teachers. Marian and Marija will be in charge of the dinner.  This is always a fun event and a chance to learn new dances and have a dance party with folk dancers from all over the Bay Area.

You'll find attached as a PDF a flyer/registration form.


And before you can scratch your head and say, wha' wuzzat . . .
