We began November with our new
officers, headed by
President Jackie Daemion. We

Many Rockin’ Jokers attended the
Annual Thanksgiving Dinner Dance, expertly organized
by Jane Bishop. This
dance has become a tradition and enjoyed by dancers

of our Rockin’ Jokers will be participating in the San Jose Christmas
