As many of you know, we hold classes and dances at the USO of North Carolina, Jacksonville Center. The USO serves the military families and members in support and services while either stateside or overseas. Occasionally, a military function will take place at the USO on a day that we happen to have our regularly scheduled dance or class. We are gratetful for having the opportunity to work out of the USO and we step to the side for the military event. This Saturday, April 5, 2014, our 1st Saturday Monthly Dance will not be held due to the necessity of a military function taking place at the USO.
