Betty and Ray Reagan, both from New York, are now full-time residents of Sun Lakes. They have accepted an appointment to the Cotillion Dance Club Board of Directors. They will be working on event production. Please welcome them and thank them for their willingness to serve the membership. More board introductions in upcoming articles.

The planning for next season is continuing. Our new website is nearly complete. General membership will have access starting in August. Several new members have joined this month. The annual newsletter will be mailed to members in August and will provide details on the board, budget, membership, dance plans and volunteer needs for dance setup and teardown. We will also include the links for the new web site and descriptions of the new online capabilities.

The dinner dances for next season are scheduled in the Oakwood Ballroom from 6:00-10:00 p.m. on October 10, 2015, November 14, 2015, January 09, 2016, February 06, 2016, March 12, 2016 and April 09, 2016.

This coming season music will be provided by Messengers, a great show band, Rich Howard and his Orchestra, the Lyn Jackson Ensemble and the Sonoran Serenade Big Band. 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.
