It’s a new year and we have been through a lot in 2020. We transitioned to Virtual Dances and have been staying at home.
Most notably there has been a shortage of interest in members deciding to be on the Board of Directors for this new year.
In order for our club to continue offering dances (virtual or in-person), there needs to be an Executive Board in order to be recognized as a club in the state of California.
This means that we need the following four positions filled first: President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. We cannot legally be a club without filling these four Executive positions.
We will then need Directors for Membership/Insurance and Operations. After that, anyone volunteering for the remaining six Director positions will be an added plus!
There were only two members who said they would be willing to serve on the Board of Directors for 2021.
This is not enough to remain operating at this time, and a new board has not been formed for 2021.
Boots ‘n’ Buckles Dance Club will have to take a hiatus until a new Board of Directors can be assembled and take over the club’s duties.
Thus, until we can get at least four commitments for the Executive positions for our Boots ‘n’ Buckles Dance Club, we will not be sponsoring any virtual dances in 2021.
If you or someone you know is willing to get a board together with four or more members, please let me know and I can help facilitate getting the new board up-to-speed and functioning again.
We wish you all a Happy New Year and hope that we can all get back together again in person some day. Maybe late 2021 or sometime in 2022 ????
Our dear Lorraine Kurtela passed away on December 2, 2020 with Michele and Michael right by her side. She was well known in the dance world…competing, teaching, choreographing dances and performing in many skits. She was full of life and lived her’s to the fullest, each and every day, until her passing.
Lorraine was a member of Boots ‘n’ Buckles for many, many years and drove from San Carlos to come to our dances at Swiss Park.
If you didn’t know, here are some of the dances choreographed by our Lorraine:
Auntie Mame - Lorraine Kurtela and Michele Burton
Funky Farmer – Lorraine Kurtela and Darci Burton
Grasshopper– Lorraine Kurtela and Norman Faria
Gypsy Rose – Lorraine Kurtela
Hello Dolly – Lorraine Kurtela
On The Sunny Side Of The Street – Lorraine Kurtela
Sweet Georgia Brown – Lorraine & Michele Burton
White Christmas – Lorraine Kurtela
Yes Sir That’s My Baby – Lorraine Kurtela
She has been a true friend to so many people and has touched our hearts in so many ways!
Rest in peace, our dear Miss Dolly, Mother Goose, Lorraine!
Forever in our hearts,
Boots ‘n’ Buckles Dance Club
We are actively seeking candidates for our Board of Directors in 2021. Until we can get back to dancing in person, there is not much to do. We still need you to fill the positions.
All of the current board members have either moved away or will no longer be serving on the board after December 2020. This means that without a Board of Directors, the Boots 'n' Buckles Dance Club cannot hold any dances.
Please let the webmaster know if you can help fill the voids.
We depend upon dancers like you to stay involved in order to keep our dance club operating. Thank you for your consideration to help keep us dancing!
