Howdy Everyone!

It’s looking a little gloomy outside at the moment. Fall weather. And a good excuse to stay inside and have some fun. Slow jams, a great dance, and the fall festival in Spokane!

Have a great month. And thank you to all of those who turned out for the Halloween dance, and especially those who came in costume. A good time was had by all.
