 New Haven Branch Party

1977 – 2017


You are cordially invited to a party in celebration of our 40th anniversary. We’ll have refreshments, old easy dances, and some new dances composed especially for this occasion. The program will be on the short side, allowing time for walk-throughs and the occasional demonstration set, if needed. The 40th anniversary is the Ruby year. Get out your red clothes, red dance shoes, and enjoy a wonderful afternoon of dancing and reminiscing.

When:            Saturday, November 11, 2017

Time:               2:00-6:00 pm

Location:        The First Church of Christ
                       5 Meetinghouse Lane
Woodbridge, CT  06525

Cost:                $10

Food:               Please bring a dish to share if you’re so inclined.

If you’re in touch with anyone who used to dance and doesn’t anymore, please encourage them to come. They don’t even have to dance but let’s renew old friendships and remember the wonderful experiences that have made this activity so important to all of us.
