Dear Dancer,

Wow, it has been a long haul in terms of the pandemic, and we have
certainly missed dancing and seeing everyone.  During the past two years,
the Board of Directors has continued to meet, hoping that we would be able
to dance again at some point.  And we were hoping that new leadership
would emerge to take the dance forward.

Unfortunately, no one has stepped up to fill our organizer shoes.  So,
sadly, CCCDS will not be sponsoring any more contra dances in SLO for the

new Board of Directors can be formed.  Anyone who has interest in being a

Contra Carnivale committee has tentative plans to hold their event in

Until we dance with you again

Keith, Jean, Harold, Terry, Chanel, and Rick
