About twenty energetic Rockin’ Jokers had a lively time at St. Francis Cabrini Church playing bocce ball and having a BBQ and potluck.  Bob & Colleen Rootsaert organized this fun event.  Our Halloween HOooooDOWN was great, with Eric Henerlau calling and John Flora cueing.  Our chairpersons were Marge Elizondo & Ray Bareiss.  (Ray filled in well while Marge was recovering from surgery).  Jeri & Doug Bates were in charge of serving pies, Joann Jones was in charge of the split-the-witch’s brew pot, and Sue & Jed Cyr were in charge of admitting the goblins.  Many dancers came in creative costumes.  All enjoyed the apple and pumpkin pies.  The Annual Thanksgiving Potluck Dinner and Salvation Army Toy Dance, coordinated by Jane Bishop, was enjoyed by all.

Some of our current officers and directors were reelected for another term.   They are: Jackie Daemion-President, JoKay Bednar-Secretary, Jed and Sue Cyr-Director and Van Symons-Director.  Newly elected to offices are: Kitty and Greg LaFavor-Vice President and John Verhagen-Treasurer, Colleen & Bob Rootsaert-Director and, Dorothy & Marcus Haskins-Director.

We wish Marge Elizondo a healthy recovery from her surgery in late October. 

December will be an active month for the Rockin’ Jokers, starting with a square dance demonstration at Sunrise Assisting Living of Sunnyvale.  After the demonstration, we will have a change-of-office lunch and installation.  Party night in December will be our annual, festive holiday party.  Our last club dance of the year will be an alumni party night when we will celebrate “Days of the Past”.  Members have been asked to bring club photos/albums/scrapbooks for the Jokers, the Rafter Rockers and/or the Rockin’ Jokers.  Capping off a fabulous year for the Rockin’ Jokers will be our participation in the SCVSDA/SCVCA Whing Ding.
