Anna Hoegel is the proud recipient of the Red Cross President’s Achievement Award. This award was presented to Anna for spending 4,000 plus hours volunteering at the Red Cross Blood Bank.

A large number of RJ’s attended a celebration honoring Loretta Churchill on her 90th birthday.  Loretta is an accomplished dancer and Harold Fleeman, Roger Smith, and Sue Harris kept the festivities in a happy mood with their calling and cueing.

Fifteen RJ’s attended the Dickens Christmas Faire at the Cow Palace in So. San Francisco.  The crafts, music and costumes were beautiful and unique.

Recently fifty-seven square dancers from various clubs enjoyed a guided tour at Moffet Field in Sunnyvale.  There is so much history presented in the photographs and documents it is hard to absorb it all in one visit. .  We were fortunate to see a dirigible ascending while we were there.

Doug Bates has taken a leave of absence while undergoing a knee replacement.  Sue Cyr and Dorothy Haskins have had knee surgery.
