We are happy to post and promote it! Please visit the Community Page on this site too.
The Cafe Shalom Dancers have been visiting and entertaining residents at Robison Health Center for over 20 years. They have danced every other month, 6:30 to 7:30 pm. We will be on hiatus until Jan. 2017 during construction at Robison.
We are looking for a Cafe Shalom Dancers' coordinator. The coordinator confirms dates (we dance every other month) with Jennifer at Robison, works with Duane to confirm dances, outreaches to dancers, and coordinates with Sue for publicity. Please help us continue this mitzvah tradition of over 20 years! Contact Debbi if interested. firstname.lastname@example.org
