ROCKIN' JOKER CLUB CHATTER
by Marv and Ina Tanner
(Published in Squares 'Round the Bay, 03/06)
February 1st, the Rockin’ Jokers started dancing at
Park United Methodist Church, bounded by Leigh
Ave., Gunston Way and Wyrick Ave. If you need a map to find us, one may
be found on our website www.rockinjokers.com.
Katydids many Rockin’ Jokers enjoyed the Sweethearts Special. It was a perfect opportunity to dance with
our valentines. Our party night in
February was very special as it gave us a venue to express our
wishes. At the end of
February, many Rockin’ Jokers enjoyed a
social night out at the Gaslighter Theater in Campbell.
We began our evening with a delicious meal
at Katie Bloom’s Irish Pub and Restaurant across from the theater. The melodrama was great fun and had us both in
tears and laughter. Our thanks go to Bill Steinberg and Lola Michael for
organizing this entertaining evening. Coming
up in March, Bill and Lola have
planned a night of swing dancing to the 10th Avenue Band at
Avalon Night Club.
we heard that the Winter Festival was a great success, with attendance
up. Several Rockin’ Jokers went and had a
missed Phyllis DePalmo due to her recent
shoulder surgery. She is on the mend,
and we look forward to seeing her again on the dance floor. Phyllis
has not been idle. She and Chuck
are chairing our Circus Circus which
is coming up on April 8th. Be
sure to mark your calendars; you won’t want to miss
Roger Hemsley has returned from
England. His tribute poem was published
in the January issue of “Squares ‘Round the Bay”. Roger is supporting his
partner Charlene McAndrew.
Club Chatter authors, Marv and Ina Tanner
became proud great-grandparents.
