Dear Square Dancers,
The 48th Annual Missouri State Dance is moving
closer, (19, 20 & 21 October 2007), and things are looking good.
Are you all
pre-registered? As of the 18th of July 2007, we have 312
pre-registered. Remember that in order to get a Souvenir Book and qualify
for a door prize, you must pre-register. You have until the 1st
of October to pre-register, get your Souvenir Book and save some money.
Forms are in the DOIN's or Bob and Faye Anglin (firstname.lastname@example.org)
(573) 374-9609 will be happy to assist you.
still a lot of raffle tickets out there. If you have already sold yours,
John and Eleanor Stover (email@example.com)
(573) 345-4772 would be happy to get more tickets to you. Remember, for
every dollar's worth of tickets you sell, your club keeps 50 cents. John
and Eleanor also have those good-looking Route 66 T-Shirts, Polos, Towels
and Hats for sale. Please work on selling all the raffle tickets you can.
The Fashion Show will be great.
Jan Vaughn and Bruce Gilder (firstname.lastname@example.org)
(573) 364-2253 are getting it all set up and you won't want to miss the
show. You may contact her to let her know that you want to be in the show,
and the forms are in the DOIN's or Jan will help you.
Fran Purnell says that the door prizes are coming along good. Please try to
get your door prizes to her as soon as possible so that she can have them
ready. (573) 532-8691.
and Clifford Ogle are putting the Souvenir book together and we have until
the 15th of August 2007 to get everything in to them. They are
in need of District Officers pictures, Memorials, names of clubs and members
who have purchased booster ribbons and your ads. Full page ads for square
dancers are $55.00, 1/2 page is $38.00, 1/4 page is $23.00. For non dancers,
the prices are $80.00, $55.00 and $32.00. It would be nice to get an ad
from each club and maybe some personal ads just saying HELLO. Check to see
if your local bank, gas station or any local business would like to
advertise. You can contact Clifford and Rosalyn at (573) 759-2127
Presidents, fellow Square Dancers, Wes Dyer (Big Enis) made a statement to
the crowd at our Twilight Twirlers Festival in July that everyone should
support their State Dance because this is the one dance held in your state
where all the money comes back to you. This is a true statement. Much of
the money made by the State Dance goes back to each District to help with
their lesson costs and some goes to help publish your DOIN's magazine. All
you present and past Club Presidents know it costs to acquire a place to
dance and to advertise. So, the more of you who pre-register, sell raffle
tickets, buy or sell a shirt and attend the dance and buy ads, the more
money we will make to help out and promote Square Dancing.
Thanks for your time
Lets all support a good thing
