Hello Folkdancers,

We met two new dancers, Chrissy and Hanna. We will dance again this Saturday, July 21, 7-10 pm, at the
Salvation Army Gym, 110 Bountiful Drive, a block south of Kalispell Regional Medical Center.

A week from Friday, on 7-27, Joe is hosting a barbecue at his house, starting about 5 pm. Joe says "Family,
friends and pets are welcome!"

In other news, Brenda W. will be leaving us. She has accepted a position as chaplain at the hospital in
Newport, OR, and will also be doing hospice work there. She leaves in mid-August and has a very busy
schedule until then, but hopefully we will get to see her before she leaves. We will miss her, but dance
groups in the Newport area will have a great new addition.

The recent email from Mike is repeated at the end, regarding possible dates for an international
folkdance gathering in Missoula in September or October. Send him your thoughts if you might go. We
had a terrific time last year.

From Mike and Susan in Missoula:
Hello - I checked on the place we danced in last year, and all Saturday's in September and October are
available.  Susan and I already have commitments for the first two weekends of September and last two
weekends of October.  Homecoming in Missoula is the weekend of September 29, which may not really be an

Given that, can you pass the word (email) around and query your dance community as to which of the
following Saturday dates might provide a good opportunity to gather to dance:
- Saturday September 22
- Saturday September 29 (Homecoming Weekend)
- Saturday October 6 (Columbus Day Weekend)
- Saturday October 13

October 6 is the first contra dance of the season for Missoula, but that should not be an issue.  Columbus
Day weekend may be a 3-day holiday for some folks. I'm personally thinking that we might follow the Kalispell
format and have a potluck on Saturday.

Talk it up for a couple of weeks, and let me know your preference ... maybe your 1st and 2nd choice. Please
feel free to distribute this email to others in your community and in other communties.  I have a rather
sparse email list.

Here's  to Independence!

Mike and Susan
