A new page has been added to our web site.  Personal Notes gives information about “the folks we care about” when there is something to know. Right now I have an update on the condition of dancer Noel Pinkley (7/29) and the obituary note for musician Valerie Young.

Attendance has been so good at our regular sessions that we have enough cash set aside to invite Keltricity back for a live band dance. (When was the last time you danced to a dead band?)  We are looking at the possibility of a late fall/early winter dance and an early spring dance to go with our summer event. Let’s talk about what we might want to do.

The Louisville Area JASNA Festival is on a one year hiatus in 2015 but we will have an event on July 18 so keep that date on your calendar.

Still Photos and videos of the 2014 JASNA GRAND BALL are now available. There is a new page on this site with links to all of that here.
