Let's Party, It's Springtime!

RIWA Dance

Ah Spring! It is that time again to get away from all those chores, spread your wings, swing those hips, and celebrate with RIWA.  Let's have some fun and get-together to welcome in spring on April 12th beginning at 7:00 at our cozy nest, Letter Carriers Hall, 174 Mayfield Street, Cranston, RI.  Shake off those winter blues and come fly with us. The last dance was high spirited and to quote one guest "RIWA ROCKS."

Enjoy the warmth, the songs and the dancing.   Mingle with friends or meet new ones and have a blast. Come on over because the weather inside is cheery and fun. A honey ham with some ham fixings will be cooked and RIWA is providing roast beef, ham and turkey roll-ups as a food starter. Remember this is a pot luck so bring a dish to share. We open at 7 and expect to have some eats ready at 7:30 pm The event is BYOB and dancing will begin at 8. Remember this a BYOB event.  Dance Coordinator Tweeter request attendees  bring one of their favorite dishes for the Pot-Luck scheduled for 7:30. Doors will open at 7:00 p.m. The Dance music is scheduled to begin at 8:00, however, softer music will be played from 7 to 8 and if you feel inclined, feel free to utilize the dance floor. RIWA pegged the seven to eight time as its social hour for members to chat, get seated, enjoy a bite to eat and dance if you wish.

Admission fee is $10.00 for guest/non-members.

RIWA membership fee is $25.00 annually. Your membership to RIWA allows you to attend the remaining five of six scheduled privately held dances. Be money wise and join our organization which has been supported by the lesbian community for 35 years.
