January 2019 Dance
"22nd Anniversary Celebration & Buffet"
at St. John's Lutheran Church, Algonquin, IL
Our Chapter Dance & Buffet will be held as scheduled on Saturday, January 19th. We have confirmed with St. John's Lutheran Church that the roads, parking lots and sidewalks will be cleared and salted in time for our event to start at 6:00pm. The latest forecast predicts that the main snow will pass through our area by noon Saturday with mostly cloudy skies for the remainder of the day and evening. We look forward to seeing you all and celebrating our 22nd Chapter Anniversary!
Our next dance, the "22nd Anniversary Celebration & Buffet", will be held on Saturday, January 19, 2019 at St. John's Lutheran Church Activity Center, Algonquin, IL.
The Buffet will be held between 6:00pm and 7:30pm with some of the food being catered by the Texas Roadhouse restaurant. With your help we'll have plenty of delicious food available. We are asking if you could kindly bring a dish to pass either an appetizer, salad or dessert so we have a fun variety of food for everyone.
Also, this dance is a benefit for the Food Pantry, so we are asking for a minimum donation of $3 per person that will go directly to replenish the Food Pantry’s supplies after the holidays. If you would like to bring canned and dry foods for the Food Pantry that would also be greatly appreciated!
Then, dance off the added calories with a free Merengue lesson at 7:45 pm from Professional Ballroom Dance Instructors Frank and Jackie Penze! Open dancing will start at 8:15 pm and continue until 10:30 pm with Ballroom, Latin & Swing music provided by DJ "Dr. Rod".
There will be free cake and coffee, door prizes, a 50-50 drawing and surprises. The dress code is dressy casual, no jeans or gym shoes. Admission is $8/person for USA Dance members, $12/person for non-members and $10/person for seniors 65 and older.
St. John's Lutheran Church is located at 300 Jefferson St., Algonquin, IL. See the "Maps" page on this website for directions to this location and to download a map.
