Weekly News Report for Wednesday, September 16, 2020

Over at the IFDA Social Event at Greensfelder Memorial Shelter in Creve Coeur Park, on a Friday afternoon, we did something we haven't done in a long, long  time…….WE DANCED TOGETHER!

We didn't dance hand-in-hand nor arm-in-arm.  We didn't dance in a room.  We wore our masks and social-distance-danced outside, around and around and around the shelter.  We stayed apart, but we still did it together and we did it to the excellent programming of Nancy Couture.  THANK YOU Nancy and WELL DONE!

We chatted with good friends and ate our dinner together at the picnic tables under the shelter.  We all had a GREAT TIME on a nice evening overlooking Creve Coeur Lake.

Finally, we give a GREAT BIG THANK YOU to Nancy & Rex Couture for making this all possible.  And THANK YOU Everyone for being there.
