I want to thank everyone for coming out to our final meeting of the BIDSC. It was a great Christmas Party. It's too bad that we don't get that kind of turnout at our regular meetings. If we did, we would still have a club.
Don't forget about our Club Dance Meeting today! It's a Father's Day theme. It will be a lot of fun like usual. The free dance lesson starts at 6pm so get there at 5:45 to check in.
This is a reminder that we are postponing out Club Dance Meeting this month since it falls on Mother's Day and the Brandin Iron will be closed. Our meeting this month will be on Sunday, May 15th. We hope to see you all there! We will have a game and lots of dancing!!!
We had so much fun at the meeting today! We had several guests from our BIDSC Meetup group that we just started. We also had several other guests. We played a game, had a mardi gras contest and have great hurricane drink specials. Thanks to all who attended. Remember, we have elections next month so please come to that meeting!
Today is our Mardi Gras theme meeting at the BIDSC meeting at 6pm. There will be a free dance lesson from 6-6:30, a contest for the best mardi gras mask, a game, door prize drawings, a featured drink - a Hurricane - and a lot of fun!! Don't miss out. We are also taking nominations for next months board elections.

Earl Rutherford, another long time member of the BIDSC, passed away on February 7th at his home in Riverside. He would have been 93 in April. He will be long remembered for his posterboards he would make with candy bars. He was also known for telling jokes, handing our chocolate kisses and small pads of paper from Las Vegas. And who can forget all of the golf balls he would donate for our Club Meetings. He will long be remembered.
