Following my husband's death in 2008, I moved from Tennessee to Florida to look after my parents. Now I'm living in a retirement community, making friends and trying new things. The most fun I've had has been ballroom dancing. So far, I've taken intro lessons in all the dances and now I'm starting intermediate. I hardly have time to read anymore but I manage four or five dances a week!

Charity Ball - May 18
We arrived at the Pioneer Gardens around 5:00 to set up and the air conditioning was off. That was fun ... NOT. Thankfully, someone came and turned it on just before the dance started. One other little hiccup was that one bag full of decorations for the VIP tables somehow didn't make it to the dance so Den went out and bought new tablecloths, napkins and champagne glasses. My hero came to the rescue.
After all the expenses were deducted we raised $1700 for Hospice of Marion County. For such a small organization as ours, that is phenomenal.
