IMPORTANT NOTICE

CANCELLING ALL BIG BAND DANCES FOR APRIL & MAY

We are aware that many of you have been distracted during this unprecedented time with the developments regarding the CORONAVIRUS outbreak throughout the World and the United States.  It has finally come to the Rochester area.

We have cancelled all Big Band Dances for April and May 2020. I will keep everyone updated as we move forward. Be safe and well and remember, once we are through with this crisis, events that bring the community together will be even more critical.

Keep healthy, be positive and save your energy for a busy summer.
