AIFD Newsletter
March 27, 2020
From the AIFD Board President:
Denise FynmoreWe sincerely hope and pray that all our AIFD dancers are faring well during this time of the COVID-19 virus. Travis County has instituted a shelter-in-place order that started Tuesday, March 24, a serious measure that is aimed at stopping transmission of the virus in order to “flatten the curve.” We urge everyone to follow this guidance as much as is possible, because the sooner the virus is stopped, the sooner we can get back to DANCING. We will not do this until we are 100% sure it is safe to do so. I miss folk dancing and my dancing friends, and I look forward to seeing you all on the dance floor as soon as possible. We will keep you updated on any information on resuming folk dancing. Please take care and stay safe! - Denise Fynmore.

If you have a video file to share, let us know and we can help you load it onto the AIFD Youtube page. We can also help load pictures to the AIFD photo album. We can then include corresponding links in the newsletter.
