News & Update
Les Amies Dance Club has of course been impacted by Covid-19 like many businesses and service organizations in Edmonton. We had to cancel our last two dances including our cherished Rose Ball.
The Annual General Meeting occurred on September 10th. We have a new President Couple - Chris & George Pugh! Look in the "Contact Us" page for our full list of executive positions and members. Thank you to all the volunteer members serving on the Executive for the 2020-21 season!
Looking into the future, we have tentatively planned the following:
October 30, 2020 - Phantom Masquerade Ball - CANCELLED: COVID
December 4, 2020 - Victorian Christmas Ball - CANCELLED: COVID
March 19, 2021 - Flamingo Fling Ball
May 14, 2021 - Gala Rose Ball
These would all be formal balls and be held at Ukrainian Youth Unity Centre.
The key word here is “tentative”. We still need to assess what will be allowed by Health Authorities and how our membership would feel about attending events in the current environment.
We will provide additional updates as more information becomes available. Until then, please … stay safe!
