THANKS TO FABULOUS SCDC VOLUNTEERS

Great thanks and credit goes to the Event Committee for organizing our volunteers and executing all the jobs, large and small, that are required for a smooth-running dance or event. Thanks to all our volunteers, and particularly to Kathy Madsen, who coordinates the volunteer crew for each dance and Workshop Event. The volunteer roster (currently 38 dancers) rotates throughout the year, so that each person supports the volunteer crew for only about a half-dozen Saturdays. Our dancers are able to enjoy a great dance experience because of the SCDC volunteers who are working behind the scenes. Our volunteers set up all the tables, chairs, decorations, and sound system. After the dance the process is reversed and everything is properly put away for next time. During the dance volunteers manage the registration desk and keep all the refreshments stocked in the kitchen. By sharing the work that goes into each dance, SCDC makes sure that all of our dancers have fun at SCDC. If you can set-up, tear-down, pick up the ice, arrange the snack trays, or otherwise help with the dances, please contact Kathy Madsen (email kmpr405@gmail.com) or any of our Board members. Ron will be glad to take your call or text at (202)664-0707. Your commitment to help with just a few dances adds up to a great experience for everyone all year long. Thanks to all of our Volunteers for making our dances so successful!

Thanks to the FOP

Thanks to the FOP for opening their Bar/Lounge to the Guests and Members of SCDC during our dances. We appreciate the very attractive prices, and the support that we get from the FOP. Many of our members and guests enjoy the lounge and bar that the FOP has generously opened on dance nights.

Please check out the bar/lounge and say "Hello" to the bartender. Chip and the other bartenders are volunteers

from the FOP that come to assure that we have a great time at the dances. Their support at the bar is another indication of FOP's support of our club.

As always, if you prefer, you may bring your own bottle from home. SCDC supplies soft drinks.
