In Memoriam:
It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you of the passing of a dear friend and fellow dancer, John Nicolay. John passed this past Friday, January 5th, 2018. He had been receiving treatment for lung cancer. His fiancé, Deb, has asked me to inform all his friends in the dance community of his passing. His memorial service will be held on Friday, February 9th, 2018 at the Rush Creek golf course at 5:00 pm. Thank you, Michelle Ziegler
