San Diego, CA

Monthly dances of the Bon Temps Social Club feature Louisiana-style live music with a dance lesson for beginners before the dance. They are usually held on the second Saturday evening of the month at the War Memorial Building in San Diego’s beautiful Balboa Park. The free-with-admission dance lesson begins at 6:20 p.m., and the open dancing to live music is 7:00 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. The philosophy of the club is “If you’re smiling you’re doing it right” — which is another way of saying everyone at any age or skill level is welcome at our dances.

We certainly hope you will choose to join us at one of our dances, and discover for yourself how much fun dancing to Louisiana-style music can be. The cost of attending our monthly dances is $10. (By the way, if you’ve never been to one of our dances before, your admission to your first dance is just $5.)

*******************************

From David V:

Dear Friends of NOLAH,

The Seventh Annual Veterans' Appreciation Dinner is set for Sunday, January 28, 2018.  We will be hosting the event from noon until 5:00 PM at Fast Times restaurant located at 3065 Clairemont Drive, San Diego, 92117.  At this time we honor those who have served in the armed forces and those on active duty as well.  For this event, all veterans, active duty personnel and their families will eat free.  We are in need of volunteers for the weekend. From prep work on Saturday, the 27th, to early morning cooking on the 28th, to set up and clean up.  Attached you will find the event flier and our volunteer needs.  We are still in need of donated food items and funds for the event.  The menu will include turkey, ham, roast beef, gumbo, other great side dishes including desserts. 

 Sponsors for the day include Fast Times, King Technologies, The County of San Diego, Courage To Call, Abbey Party Rentals, San Diego Saints Fans, The Blue Frog Band, The La Jolla Presidents' Lions Club and The Mira Mesa Lions Club.  Any funds raised net of the event expenses will be going towards our current disabled veterans' ADA project.  There will be live music and plans for a veterans' job fair are in the works.  Stay tuned for more details on that one!  

 If you would like to volunteer, please call Bari at (858) 342-2033 or go towww.nolah.org/volunter.   Please pass the word along to anyone you may know who is veteran or active duty to let them know we are here for them.  We will be serving in four shifts.  From noon to 1:30 PM, 1:00 to 2:30, 2:00 to 3:30 and 3:00 to 4:30.  We are working to get folks signed up online for reservations at www.nolah.org/veterans.   Anyone who wishes to donate food, supplies or funds should call me, at (858) 342-0365 or drop a line back at dvaz@nolah.net.  As always, we appreciate all you do for us.

Sincerely,

 

Dave
