 This Week in Review

USO Dance
The Charlotte Douglas International Airport is very proud of its USO Chapter.  I do not recall the exact numbers, but, they help a lot of military families each month.  The Metrolina Area square dancers came out in force and helped raise nearly $1,500 last Sunday.  
Circle 8's
 The National Hockey League has long known for the following,  "I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out".  How does this tie in with the Circle 8's? "I got to the hall, there was a lot of fun, smiles, good food, laughter, handshakes, hugs, and then a square dance broke out!"  Come out Thursday, July 21st. and experience the Circle 8's difference.  Thank goodness we are located under the Library and Fire Department in the Fairview section of Asheville on Fairview Road.  For more information go to the Circle 8's website, Circle8s.info
