Messian Open Dance Tomorrow, 10/15/2021

Howdy Folks! This is Big Twinkles! Welcome to the Open Dance of Messiah!! 
It’s State Fair time, if you couldn’t tell by my greeting. 
We will have a big ol’ time on Friday, October 15th, from 5:30-7:45pm just like they are at Fair Park.
Attached below you will find the dance list to look over until then. 
Thanks again to all who are a part of these open dances. It brings as much happiness (if not more) than a Fletcher’s Corn Dog, or Salt Water Taffy!!!!
I do ask for your prayers for hubby Chuck as he cannot walk right now because of his knee–the one he didn’t have surgery on already. Tonight he will have an MRI done and we are praying for a clear diagnosis and quick/easy treatment. 
Even in the hard days, may we all experience the true peace that comes from the Holy Spirit. 
With thanks in my heart for you,Ellen (Twinkles)


Karen Aubrey’s class on Mondays at Heights Recreation Center is changing time effective immediately, 10/11/2021. Her new class time will be 1:30-3:00 pm.

Ann Pettit announced:

I have some news to share and I hope it will be a pleasant surprise.  I spoke with D’Aun last week.  They still do not have a definite closing date for Garland Senior Center but no matter when that occurs, they want me to start teaching again.  Until Garland Senior reopens AFTER the remodel, we will be dancing at Bradfield Recreation Center.  The address is 1146 Castle Dr., Garland, TX  75040.  It is my understanding we will be dancing in the gym which has a floor similar to the one at Messiah where we’ve been having our monthly open dances.

 I will be doing Absolute Beginner classes on Mondays from 9 to 10 The first session will begin November 1 & run through December 13 when we will shut down for the Holidays.  This will be a short session because we are getting a late start and running into the holidays.  We will re-start with a new session on Jan 10 and going forward have new sessions starting quarterly.  Bradfield does charge for its classes which is new for us.  The charge will be $3/class and will be paid by session.

On Wednesdays we will have a high beginner class from 9 to 10 starting on November 3.  This will be an ongoing class.  The fee will be $3/class and paid by the month.  December will be a short month due to the holidays.
If you have questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact me.  Looking forward to hearing from you and seeing you in November
