On Saturday February 4th, members of our Chapter entertained, educated and encouraged onlookers visiting the Lakewood Ranch Main Street Ovation Festival in the art and craft of social ballroom dancing. With our DJ Janis Merluzzo on music and microphone detail and our dapper webmaster Bob Miller distributing brochures he designed outlining the benefits of ballroom dance and our Chapter, our dancers wowed the crowd with routines ranging from swing, tango, rumba, foxtrot, salsa, waltz, bolero and cha cha. Participating in the event were: Diane & Vinny Celeste, Pam Weaver & Ken McCleary, Annette & Marc Riffel, George & Gertrud Keri, Chane & Viktoriya Lee, George Moulder & Elaine Ellison and also with Elaine Friday, Bill Grolemund & Jan Kizzia.


The Southern Star Tampa Chapter invited us to perform at their February dance. Dancing the waltz and paso were Ken McCleary and Pam Weaver; rumba and cha cha danced by Daniel Fugazzotto and Janis Merluzzo; dancing the east coast swing were Marc and Annette Riffel.
