It saddens me deeply to tell you that one of our long-time dance enthusiasts passed away last Thursday night after a long bout with cancer. Tamie Hall was always a joyous presence. When I think of her, I think of her beautiful, gentle smile, the twinkle in her eye, and her wonderful, happy laugh.
Her close friend, Byron Thompson has sent out this message:
The memorial service for Tamie Hall will take place Wednesday, July 2nd at 3 PM.
Douglass Mortuary MAP
500 E Imperial Hwy
El Segundo, CA 90245
Following, many of the dancers will go out for dinner together before proceeding to the nearby Rhythm Club where we will continue our tribute to Tamie. Please send me an email if you wish to be included when dinner reservations are made.
Please make this information available to all who'd be interested in honoring Tamie with their presence.

JUMP, JIVE, AND SAIL THE LINDY CRUISE

Torrance Historical Society Event, Thursday, July 17,'08 5-8 PM
The Torrance Historical Society is holding ... what else? ... a Historical Fair,
featuring exhibits representing WWII. They have tried to get swing dancers to
attend and dance for the past few years for "atmosphere" and hope to be more
successful THIS year.
We will be dancing on the street in front of the Historical Society building to the
DJ's choice of music ('30s-'50s) EXCEPT for between 6pm-6:30pm when we can
give him OUR CHOICE of music; at this point in time we will be directed to a
"stage area" to dance and we "may" be filmed by the local Torrance Cable TV channel.
After we are featured we can stay and watch other performers, and wait to dance
when more swing music is featured (DJ's choice at this point), or we can peruse
the vintage stores and eat at one of the many local restaurants to round out the
evening (still time for Lindy Groove if you haven't had enough!!!).
There will be water available.
Parking will be difficult so be prepared/give yourself some time to get to the
Current participants include:
Reetha Garretty, Catherine Sayer, Katie Albee, Laura Greenlund,
John Apodaca, Scott Giordano, Tony Mercuro, Jeremy Heckman,
Steve Densmore has volunteered to photograph and eat...Jes has volunteered
to shop (spend his money) at the vintage shops...
what the heck a "gate"is? This was a phrase popularized by 1940's comedian,
Jerry Colonna, who would holler it out every time he was introduced on the
Bob Hope radio program. It was a friendly salutation to a swing cat (dancer
or swing music enthusiast). Basically, we swing like a gate!
JOIN THE FUN!
BUT, WHAT THE HECK IS IT?
Many of you still don't know about our Swing Shift Rhythm Club. It's one of our best kept secrets. Now is the time to get the SSRC "above the radar."
THE SWING SHIFT RHYTHM CLUB (SSRC), founded in 2000 by Rusty Frank's swing dance students, The SSRC has two missions:
1. Having fun! (Fun)
2. Doing good deeds! (Philanthropy)
1. Having fun: Events where swing dancers can socialize and get to know each other outside of class (vintage clothes shopping, going to a dance-related movie, dancing in the park, eating at retro restaurants before a dance, etc.).
2. Doing good deeds: Events where we bring swing dancing to hospitals, senior homes, and community events for the purpose of good deeds, entertainment, and education in the Los Angeles area.
The SSRC is a volunteer club open to the public and the events are organized by its members. There are no dues. Members can attend as many or as few events as they wish.
