July’s 1st Saturday Dance on July 5 was wonderful. The evening began with an East Coast Swing beginner lesson followed by dancing until past 10pm. For those that were new to the dance floor, instruction was given throughout the evening, and enjoyed by all. Thank you, Cheryl and Shelly, for the delicious refreshments!
Fair winds and following seas to Adalberto Navarro as he retires from the USMC on July 18th. We will all miss you and give best wishes and blessings for the new chapter in your life in California.

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.
