RIWA's Voodoo Dance!

Saturday, October 25,2014
7:00 PM

Come one, come all and experience the magic spell of Halloween on
Saturday, October 25, at Letter Carriers Hall. The Steering Committee is
already preparing its famous witches' brew. One cup and you'll  soon find your
rhythm on the dance floor. Good spirits are invited to fly in about
7 PM to allow time to mingle with witches, ghost and goblins.

Dancing usually begins at 8 PM. Even if you decide not to don a costume,
it is OK because the event will transform you into a night creature of giddiness and dance.

Leslie, dance coordinator, welcomes you to take part in the
RIWA voodoo experience and hopes you engage in some creepy dancing.
Try our special holiday dishes:  a worm and maggot salad and blood drenched
eyeballs. All potluck dishes are welcomed at the sharing table, even if the
dish is simple.  Don't let the ghosts keep you away since there will be
plenty of good spirits. Prizes for costumes will be awarded.

Members are free, non-members are $10.00.

So remember to mark your calendar for Saturday, October 25th, 
Arrive any time from 7 pm and continue as late as mid-night.
As this dance is a potluck, bring something to share; we usually start eating
around 7:30 pm. In fact,  bring one of your favorite halloween dish. 
By 8:00, the music revs up for
dancing and so the party continues.
(B.Y.O.B. and favorite drinks.)
RIWA provides soda, coffee, and water. 

Location, our cozy nest: Letter Carriers Hall, 174 Mayfield Street, Cranston, RI,
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
scheduled privately held dances. Be money wise and
join our organization, which has been supported by the lesbian
community for 36 years.

  Our Next steering committee meeting
is set for Friday, October 3rd, 2014
 beginning at 6:30 pm at Lorraine's.
If you would like to also serve on this fun
and easy going Steering Committee, feel free to hop on board.
