RIWA's Anniversary Dance - 36 years

Saturday, September 20,2014
7:00 PM

There is a whole heap of excitement surrounding RIWA's 36th Anniversary.
Over the years, many joyous activities sponsored by the women's organization
brought laughter, joy, comfort and comradery to hundreds of women
who have chosen to participate.

 The 36-year milestone will feature music by DJ Sharon,
who along with many other's has contributed to RIWA's
longevity and success. For this dance, our pot luck features
multicultural lesbian food. What is Lesbian Food? It is any food
you as a lesbian would like to bring.
  Linda is making Pineapple Chicken
Fried Rice, and Barbara announced she will provide some
Noodle Kuegle. Donna-Marie said Lesbian Food is cheese and crackers.
If you have an explanation of what lesbian food is - don't hesitate to post your thoughts.

Marge, one of six founders will be the guest speaker
to kick off our special evening, which will also include
  a few short but fun games.

To contribute to the atmosphere, the committee will
decorate Letter Carriers Hall with helium-colored balloons
and supply an anniversary sheet cake.


The celebration will open at 7 PM when sounds of easy
listening music will welcome you while you find a table.
 At 7:45 introductions of RIWA's Steering Committee will be
made including Debra, a newcomer who has volunteered
to help RIWA. If you would like to also serve on this
fun and easy going committee, feel free to hop on board.

So remember to mark your calendar for Saturday, September 20th, 
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, Dance Coordinator Tweeter request you
bring one of your favorite dishes.  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.
