Parking Alert:
To alleviate the parking crunch around the Glenside Memorial Hall and adjacent facilities, Cheltenham Township is directing all users of the Hall (that's us) to park in the Glenside Library lot, which is just across the intersection from the Hall. It is also OK to park along Waverly St. across from the Hall. The Township asks that we not park along either side of Keswick Ave. so that those spaces can be used by residents and users of the adjacent recreation facilities.   See Map
To maintain good relations with our neighbors and the Township (which is kind enough to rent the Hall to us), and to help insure our continued use of the Hall, the Dance Committee urges all dancers to cooperate.

Thursday Night Dance Committee

SPUDS
SPUDS is open to all musicians who wish to participate, and has musicians of different levels of ability among its members. Since it is a Contradance band, the tunes range from reels to jigs and waltzes. We play for the Thursday night dance about seven times a year and occasionally for other events. For more information on how you can take part, including jams and rehearsals, visit the SPUDS website or contact SPUDS Coordinators SPUDs Coordinators Kim Neubauer or Bill Quern
