Dear Members and Friends of Independence Squares,
As the Covid19 outbreak continues to impact all of us in the Delaware Valley, the Independence Squares board is cancelling all club activities until further notice. This includes our Tuesday night classes/workshop, as well as our fly-in scheduled for March 27-29, 2020. Suspension of our Tuesday activities is effective immediately as our regular dance venue is closing for the next two weeks. Although disappointing, we believe that this is an appropriate decision since the health and safety of our dancers, callers and extended family are our main priority.
Please contact our fly-in registrar if you wish to arrange a refund of your fly-in registration. If we do not hear from you, we will automatically roll over your registration to 2021, i.e no action on your part is needed if you wish to rollover your registration to next year. If you would like to make your registration a donation to our club (not tax deductible, I’m afraid) please let us know and, as thanks, we will enter you into our raffle for a 43 inch Samsung UHD TV.
Our host hotel (Clarion) has cancelled all rooms booked via the Independence Squares fly-in block. Anyone booking outside the block will need to cancel individually.
At present, we do not know when we will resume dancing, but please be assured that the IS board will continue to monitor the situation and we will announce by e-mail, social media, and posting on our website when we believe it is appropriate to resume our dancing activities. We will miss all of you, but in the meantime, please take advantage of your time off. Read a book, watch T.V., play games, learn to knit, do some early spring weeding. Above all, please be safe.
Virtual Yellow Rocks,
Independence Squares Board of Directors
