From the SFC Publicity Director for NRT - 2020 Jan 15
Hope everyone has been able to dig themselves out from that wonderful dumping of snow we got. Looks so nice, white and clean and so much nicer than the freezing rain. Can make for difficult walking so remember you can “walk in the halls” at Mackenzie School, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 to 7:30 pm…let’s get with it, again.
Our new events calendar is available, with copies in the Town Hall lobby info rack and has been emailed out. All the news about the club is also on the website and on Facebook. Copies will also be available at our events.
Belly Dancing Workshop with Suli Adams was a wonderful event with a fascinating history of belly dancing and the different types of dance from different countries. Thank you Suli for a very interesting presentation and for getting us up and showing us some basic steps of belly and scarf dancing. It sure was fun.
