Dance with the Stars Party Recap

It was a blast! For proof positive, go to our Shutterfly site to check out some of the moments captured by Pam and Marina P. Pictures by Debra will be posted soon.

Imagine the shock to all of us when Cher walked into the room - cheers from everyone! Charlie Chaplin, the Great Gadsby, Daisy Buchanan, and Jack Nicholson were there all decked out as well. What fun, a big thanks to our busy instructors for taking the time to add this special touch. And, to all performers which gave us inspiration on what is possible with practice.

Thanks to Carol Ann for first, having the idea, and then donating the rope lights in the dance area - it really made such a difference in making the room look bigger and more festive. And a BIG thanks to Sonny of St. Andrew's for making that happen for us, and it took days - tape and glue didn't work - screws and anchors in the concrete finally did.

It takes a lot of volunteers for these special parties, please pass on your thanks to our sparkly MC of the evening, Normandie, for keeping everything on track, Bob H for the great music, Debra, Pam, and Marina for the Shutterfly pictures, Carol Ann and Pam for decorating, and our hosts for the hors d'oeuvres (Carol Ann, Connie, Pam). BDC volunteers are the best!! Sponsors for this event were our hosts, Bob Olszewski, and Jan Hyatt.
