The Summer announcements, for dancing during the week, is up to
you. Let me know of current activities and I'll put them here.

Another pre folk dance party at Joe's. Here is his invitation:
---------
I want to invite all you dancers to a potluck barbeque at my house
in Kalispell on Saturday, August 7th. The get together can start
around 3pm or so, probably eat around 5 or 5:30 or so.
Then go dancing at the Salvation Army gym at about 7.

Alas, no chicken house dancing since I don't have a chicken house.;-)

Those of you coming from out of the area, you can camp in my
backyard, or in my house. I've got lots of room.
Kids, spouses, dogs, and other friendly hanger ons are welcome!

Directions to my house are pretty simple.
Call or email me to let me know if you can come. And also,
to try and coordinate what to bring.
Joe
