PRESIDENTS' MESSAGE
Welcome to December!

This is the month of sharing with family and friends. Speaking of sharing, we will be needing people to help with setup, food, and cleanup for the New Year's Dance. If you can help out, please drop me an Email. I would like to see some more Sandpipers sign up for our party and dance!

I would like to thank the Jackson's on behalf of the Sandpipers for their many years providing our newsletter! I would also like to thank Steve Schock on behalf of the Sandpiper's for his many years providing our dance fliers!
If anyone is interested in taking over these functions please contact me.

Prior to the start of the December 12th dance, we will have a potluck which will be followed by a General Meeting.  At this meeting, we will be voting on the proposed budget for 2016. We would like to have as many Sandpipers as possible attend the meeting. We will also be selecting the officers for the coming year.  Hope to see you in a square.

Terry and Joan Thompson



SANPIPER GENERAL MEETING
By Larry Anderson

Our Sandpiper General Meeting will begin at 5:30 PM on Saturday, December 12, prior to our Holiday Cookies dance.  This is one of only two times a year all club members gather together outside of squares, and one of the few times your hard working Board of Directors members get to share with the members they serve.  This is when you will elect your new Board, and we hope everyone will be there to help welcome them to their new duties.

The General Meeting usually ends by 6 PM., followed by a potluck dinner.  Sandpiper potlucks are always fabulous; and based on the wonderful Social Suppers we have had so far this year, this one should be great.  The theme of this potluck is “International Cuisine”.  Please come even if you don't have time to fix or pick up something to share; there is always a ton of food!

And, if you haven't already sent your reservation in, you might want to RSVP for the New Year's Eve party (if it isn't sold out by the time you read this.)  It is absolutely the most fun dance of the year and a fabulous way to bring in the New Year!



SANDPIPERS THANKSGIVING DANCE
The Sandpipers had five squares on the floor most of the night, in spite of the fact that many Sandpipers were attending the RIVCO Square Dance Festival in Indio, CA.  Past President Mike Harris welcomed the dancers and made the introductions. David Mee called a fun dance and Dawn Mee cued the rounds.  Renate Hausmann and Marilyn Stalker provided the welcoming hugs and Renate also had Hospitality duties in the kitchen along with helpers Dot and Gilbert Omens, Bill and Debby Gaarde, Betty Lou Sanderson, Joy and Bruce Bainbridge and Joan Ades.  Caller Tim Pepper and cuer Bev Oren were also in attendance.  Tim even had a duet with David.  Everyone attending had a great time.



GAME NIGHT WILL BE ON THURSDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2015
By Karen Dorney

Game night will be at the home of Karen and Bob Dorney, 1278 Santa Luisa Dr, Solana Beach, CA, at 7 PM.  Please RSVP to Karen and Bob at 858-481-8411 or 2dorney@roadrunner.com.
