There is a LOT to know about attending this dance - please read carefully:

COVID Safety:

We will be dancing in the church PARKING LOT; please bring appropriate footwear (i.e. sneakers, not suede dance shoes).

The weather is projected to be 50 degrees, but we'll be dancing, so dress in layers! Consider bringing multiple masks.

We will be able to use the church's indoor bathrooms.

Please carpool! There are approximately 50 parking spaces behind the church. Please look at your map to find nearby parking lots such as the Chestnut Hill West Septa station. (Chestnut Hill West does not currently run on the weekends, but Chestnut Hill East does.)

HELP IS NEEDED FOR THIS DANCE TO HAPPEN! Volunteers are needed for set-up, tabling, card checking and clean-up. Contact Jennie Walsh, who is coordinating volunteers, on Facebook or at by Wednesday 11/3/21.
