July started with a trip to Fort Bragg for many RJ’s over the 4th of July weekend for square dancing.

Our Annual Club Picnic was July 18th and our visitation was that evening with the Lucky Steppers 51st Anniversary Dance. A big thank you goes to Jim Kauss and Patty Stevens for making all of the arrangements for our wonderful picnic.

Many RJ, family and friends enjoyed a bus trip to the Jelly Belly Factory and Budwieser Brewery July 23rd.

Our local San Jose Giants baseball game was attended on July 31st.
