We appreciate everyone who has supported us at our dances.
We also want to give a special thankyou to Joetta our DJ.
She has worked our dances for over 25 years!!
Neutral Ground Board and Joetta are working together to find a new
location.We look forward to seeing you all in the future. We will post
an update as soon as we have news to share. Thank you all again.
A message from our DJ Joetta:
to circumstances beyond our control, it seems as though our Friday
night dances have come to an abrupt end...at least for now. This has
left me with a feeling of sadness and loss, one without closure!We
are going to continue to search for a new location to have the dances,
one that will be central for all to be able to attend. Hopefully, we
will be able to spread the word that the dances will once again resume
in the springtime.For more than 25 years, I
have been so fortunate as to have been able to play music, and connect
with so many familiar faces that quickly become friends. There have
been priceless memories that I will always treasure. Not many people
are blessed with a job where people come to dance and feel happiness
for the night. I have seen people meet that one true love that they
have been waiting for, and I have even had the privilege to play at
their weddings. We even experienced a proposal right on the dance
floor!!There have been sad times as
well...friends that would come to every single dance, and quietly pass
away, and become a priceless memory. I've gone to their funerals, and
when I have met their families, I was humbled beyond words when they
told me that I made a difference to their loved ones life...this leaves
me at a loss for words.Throughout the years,
people have been so kind as to tell me how much they enjoy the dances,
and the music and your requests that I play, and how they look forward
to Friday night. Trust me when I say, the feeling is mutual...you have
all touched my life in so many different ways as well.I
want to send each of you love and hugs for accepting me throughout all
of these years. You are and always will be very special to me, and I
will never take that for granted. I am truly sorry that we didn't have
a chance to have a farewell dance, to share memories, share hugs, and
one final dance.
With great fondness,
