Las Vegas Square & Round Dancers 

From the Editor

I lost a great friend today. A man I met 36 years ago and have always had the utmost respect for. But, it isn't just my loss. This one affects the entire Southern Nevada Square Dance family.

Ron Sowah was the caller for the Stardusters Square Dance Club and has been for what seems forever. I've called more than a few dances with him and always had fun. I was enamored by his pure country sound (actually more like a hillbilly but who's really paying attention to the small stuff).

Ron suffered a heart attack just before leaving to attend a local callers meeting on July 7, 2018. Just seems so unfair for this to happen to a man who has had way more than his share of health problems in the last year or so. Unfortunately, he did not recover from this latest health setback. He passed away at 3:30 p.m. on July 10, 2018 after being taken off life support.

President's Message
    
Hello everyone and welcome to summer. Mother Nature has definitely turned up the heat!  Be safe and stay cool! And don’t forget the sunscreen……

If you want to escape the heat, we have the most fabulous op- portunity. This summer we have the pleasure of having the 17th USA West Square Dance Convention in Reno, from August 15th to the 18th. For more information go to www.nevada.usawest.net . This sounds like it is going to be a great time and it is the perfect time to escape the extreme heat here in southern Nevada.

Until then, we have lots of fun with our locals clubs. Be sure to check out the website and Bulletin calendar of events so you don’t miss out on the fun.

The Association is having postcards printed with the upcoming fall class information and these will be available for everyone to hand out very soon.  Be sure to brag to everyone you meet about the great benefits of square dancing and give them the information for our new dancer classes.

Save the date! We are going to have our Association Dance on September 29th. All the clubs will have flyers with the specifics very soon.

Our next Association meeting in scheduled for August 25th at 10:30 a.m. at the home of Mary and Ernie LaFerney.

I hope to see all of you in a square very soon. Have a great summer!

Cathy Demars, President
