Valentine's Party - Saturday February 13
Not just for couples!

Michele Costanzo will team up with Connie Vance this year to get us all in a romantic mood -- whether you have a dance partner or not! Professional Instructor from Fred Astaire, Travis Willet, will be there to dance with you and plans are already being made to create a great atmosphere.

Please bring your favorite Valentine snack to share if you have time. We were blown away with the number of easy and creative ideas on an internet search for Valentine snacks. This is such a fun party theme and people are volunteering special dishes already. Let us know if you have something special planned.

But, if you are rushed for time and can't bring a snack, come anyway -- there will be plenty!

On the menu so far:
Heart shaped cheese ball with sun-dried tomatoes
Heart shaped cocktail sausages with cupid's arrow
Cheesecake
Heart shaped French apple tarts
Heart shaped butter cookies
Coconut cake

Michele is a professional designer and has some special atmosphere creating plans in the works! Hope you can join the fun! All for only $10 or $15 (non-members), what a deal.

BDC CALENDARS

The 2016 calendars arrived this week and you may purchase them at a party or class or for $20. You can also email Connie - connievance10@gmail.com

We tried to give our volunteer pictures center-stage for each special party last year but there are plenty of others as well. There are over 82 different faces. There are only a few left.
