The Joy of dancing with your besty – Jan and Larry Ott

The photo captures Jan and Larry Ott at the Black and White Ball last January. A lot of joy in this picture! Jan and Larry met in Sun Lakes 11 years ago and have been married for 10 years. They enjoy dancing, jazzercise, golf and tennis. They have been members of Cotillion Dance Club for several years now. They hope to continue their activities in Sun Lakes for years to come. This is the second season the Otts have been the Treasurers of the club. They have faithfully managed and watched over our financial matters. The Board and the membership at large wish to thank you for your service, we could not be in better hands. Please extend them your appreciation personally at your first opportunity.

We will be introducing the new website in the August newsletter. Planning for dance productions continues.

The October and April dances will be semi-formal affairs with attire of suit and tie and cocktail dresses. The November, January, February and March dances will be formal affairs with attire of tuxedos and gowns. Details regarding menu selections, themes, music selection and guest space availability for each dance will be described in the formal invitations sent to members prior to each dance.
