We Celebrated a Happy 4th of July!

On June 19, 2019 Laura Baron posted to our LASDC Facebook Page: "It is with a heavy heart that I tell you that the love of my life has passed. He left us without pain, in our home in his sleep. Our "Energizer Bunny", Fred Baron leaves a huge hole in this world where he enjoyed life and gave so much to so many. Please remember him dancing almost every dance with his baseball cap and a smile on his face".

FRED BARON

“...dancing almost every dance with his baseball cap and a smile on his face".

Our Sincere Condolences to His Family and Friends

Fred has joined the other Famous Dancers in history, now residing at the Great

Ballroom in the Sky.

Some of our Dancin' Friends, currently out of State, that we'd like to see more often...

There is a common bond among our Dancing Friends. It transcends time and distance. The happiness we feel when we see each other again, is based on the love we have for the Dance that brought us together.

Dance on the floor, Dance in your Dreams, Love the movement of the Dance!

SUNDAY DANCE SCENE; JULY 2019

The American Legion - On our Sunday June 30th dance, and in honor of the 4th of July, the L.A.S.D.C Board Members provided an assortment of picnic foods, desserts, & drinks... Yumm! We had a great turn-out, had our Parade of Flags, and had a fun Indepen-dance with DJ Don Estep.

Our Congratulations go out to Woody, our Legion Friend and Dancer, for his being installed as the new Commander of the The American Legion Post 716 on July 6, 2019!

L.A.S.D.C. This 'n That with Sunshine! Thank you Fran & Linda!

New Members: Ed Garcia, Deborah DeGrazia, and Richard Jetter. We welcome you to our Dance world, and encourage you to Dance with anyone, all you need to do is ASK! Lucky Larry and Eloise Kroeze recently vacationed in Tahiti, and we envy them!

Greetings from Fay Roberts! "She misses everybody and, of course, the dancing." She has just moved into a new 1 bdr. condo. "She loves it and is very happy". Please write or call: Parkview Retirement Home 770 Broom Rd, Apt #221 Knoxville, TN 37909 (865) 660-1942. (Fay and Russ were members for many years.)

We wish Grace Barnes a speedy recovery, as we heard that she is still under the weather.

A Speedy Recovery is wished for Larry Price, he went in for back surgery on July 1st & 8th. He'll be Baaack! Our thoughts & Well-wishes go out to Joe Picconi, he recovering from a recent stroke, and doing well. We extend our condolences to Dorothy Aragon Baca whose Sister recently passed away in Denver, CO. Good Health is elusive and can be maintained well by keeping your brain and your body moving! Eat Healthy and Balanced meals, 3-5 small meals per day, DRINK WATER, and minimize your time in front of the TV and/or Computer. Walk a few blocks or a few Miles daily. Take classes at your local Rec. Center (Example: www.longbeach.gov) for Gardening, Cooking, Art, Exercise, or Dancing! Attend every Dance you comfortably can. Do word games, play cards, go out with friends and have meaningful conversations! Volunteer at a service organization, like for our Host location, The American Legion! You can easily Join and come more often for Ours and other events!
