Every year we ring in the new year at a contra dance. This year we danced until after midnight with about 115 old friends and new. During the break half-way through the evening, we paused for the annual men in tuxes photo. The dapper chap in the middle is not suffering from a gun shot wound. He just tie dyed his shirt. You have to love a guy who enjoys color as much as we quilters do! That photo was followed by the annual women in sparkly dresses photo.On New Year’s Day we hosted the annual dance group brunch. It’s always fun to start the new year with lots of partying!
