You know what I love?  I love it when we go to a great party with fabulous food, quality entertainment and spectacular people AND we get to come home with silent auction goodies.  Well, despite the fact that it looked like we’d gotten out-bid on all of our choice items at our fundraiser, Encores! last Saturday, Monty did manage to surprise me with a couple of silent auction treats.  What a great night!  If you’re looking for proof, just check out the photos.

We thank all the guests, volunteers, performers, sponsors, auction item donors and top-notch team at Strongbow for a lovely and successful evening.  And thank you to Donna Lind of Lind Digital for capturing it all in photos.  You all make supporting a great cause SO MUCH FUN!

Well, there’s no time to nurse my aching dancing feet around here – we keep moving on.  Classes just began last week for our youngest students and adult classes begin this Friday.  If you haven’t already, please check out the new line-up of Master Classes Lisa’s got planned for us.  I’m excited and anxious to participate.

We’re busily working on getting our 2011/12 season posted on the website with the full compliment of performance dates and times.  I’ll let you know as soon as we’re ready to go live with that.  And speaking of the website, Traci has found a fun little gizmo for us.  When you go to our auditions page, you’ll see a box in which you may insert your email address to receive alerts when that page is updated.  So now our website will let you know when it’s time for you to come back for more.  Dawg, that’s cool!

Remember 15 years ago when the internet was just a strange toy for geeks and cell phones weighed about 27 pounds and it cost $.35 a minute to use?  I’ll ponder how we ever got along without email notifications and texting as we get ready for the next class and rehearsals for And Then There Were None tonight.

Have a great week and I’ll see you soon!
