Special Request: As best that we can figure, about 82% of the dancers in our area have e-mail service. If you would run off one copy of the Area Wide Calendar for those who do not have Internet service and put it on your flyer table, I’m sure these dancers would appreciate this very much. These dates are obtained from E-Mails, Flyers and the Metrolina Dancers Association. Make sure your special dates or changes are sent to: Jerry & Kathy Lock  ncbuckeye44@carolina.rr.com  (704-455-9433)
