Oh What A Night!

Last Thursday night at Rancheros was WONDERFUL good fun!  Thank you, everyone, for dancing with us!  Jeff got to DJ on the ceiling while we danced on the floor; how about that?  I had to look through the screening to see him, as you can see from the picture.  We had a marvelous time dancing…

Over 100 dancers joined…
