Dance Lessons at the NCC

FICRA is sponsoring two months of dance lessons for island residents at 5:00PM on Wednesdays beginning March 6th. These are one hour group beginner lessons at the NCC with rotating partners so that individuals may attend solo. You do not have to have a spouse to attend or miss a class if someone you normally come with is unable to attend. The class will rotate between smooth dances (foxtrot, waltz, tango, samba, country western) one month and rhythm dances (salsa, rumba, merengue, swing, cha-cha) the next month.

Normally, we would need a minimum number of participants before scheduling lessons, but FICRA has agreed to cover the minimum charge for an instructor in March and April 2019 to see if island residents want this local activity. The FICRA Building Trust has approved the use of the NCC without cost so we can have a convenient location and keep the cost reasonable for these lessons.

The cost for lessons is just $10 per person per lesson. To get things going, FICRA is also picking up half the cost for the first 20 current FICRA Members who register for the classes, meaning their cost will be just $5 per lesson. FICRA Members should have already received an EMail about a special presale so they can take advantage of this deal. If you are a current FICRA Member and didn't get the EMail, let us know right away by EMailing us at FICRA News. The link to the signup page will be posted on our website in another week so that folks who are not currently FICRA Members can sign up too.

Thank You Volunteers

Many thanks to those who volunteered at the Annual Party with a Purpose, and the Christmas Tree Lighting and Holiday Concert events at the Nichols Community Center.

Other Items

The Sports Field received another hydro-seeding last September. The grass area of the field is closed until further notice; the track will remain open.   The NCC outdoor area is open to dogs ON LEASH, ONLY. This will be the policy as long as pet owners comply with the rules and clean up after their animals (and take the waste material home). If we continue to find pet waste (both in and out of bags) left at the NCC, we will no longer be able to allow dogs.
