Presidents Message February 2012

We wish to thank Paul Spano for his years of service to our chapter board of directors.
And we wish to welcome Jean Tauber who has accepted this vacancy on our board. We appreciate you both.

Thank you also to Geoff Davis for accepting the assignment of chapter photographer. We appreciate you, Geoff!

Welcome and thank you to Masterpiece Jewelers, our newest business partner! Masterpiece Jewelers is supporting new members to our chapter, renewed members to our chapter and our 50/50 drawing! How generous is that? They feature fine jewelry, estate jewelry, unique and classy costume jewelry, home decor, and whimsical items, such as frogs and lady bugs. They also do expert jewelry repair, custom designs, and appraisals. Questions? See our member Valerie who works at Masterpiece Jewelers or, better yet, why not visit her at the shop to see all the great items for yourself? Go to to visit their website.

By the way, this brings the return to a new membership to our chapter, $25 for a social dancer, to $257! Check out our Benefits of Membership tab from our website for details. Thank you, Stacy and Tracy (sisters and owners of Masterpiece Jewelers)!

By the way, during 2012, members renewing with our chapter will receive the $25 gift certificate from Masterpiece Jewelers, a free dance pass, and a Greater Daytona Chapter static cling decal: a $34 value for your $25 renewal as a social dancer. Why? Because we appreciate YOU!

The Greater Daytona Chapter #6026 is pleased to sponsor "Practice Night" at The Ballroom,
465 South Nova Road, Ormond Beach. This is an opportunity to practice what you are learning in your private and group lessons. "Practice Night" is every Wednesday from 7:30 - 10:00 p.m. and is a great way to transition from lessons to the social dance floor. Thank you, Frank Anderson, for partnering with our chapter.

As a new feature to our newsletter and as a benefit of membership to our chapter, current members may advertise, at no cost, in our newsletter, the sale of dance-related items. For example, do you have a pair of shoes that you don't wear? Why not sell them to someone who is looking for dance shoes? Please provide your name, contact information, description of the item, and selling price to me for inclusion in our next newsletter. You may also display the item on our flyer table at our dances with the above information. Doing so will be at your risk and not the responsibility of the chapter. Thank you.

Keep on dancing! Marta
