NACDS T-SHIRTS at $10 (arrange this with Bryan Walls at 837-0656)
Just out - a new CD by that great band, Red Mountain White Trash, called - what else- Fire in the Dumpster. This is actually their first album (are they still called albums?) It has 65 minutes of dance music, some of which you will recognize with much pleasure if you've danced to their music before; and a few songs. Copies will be available at the dances for $15, or call Ed Baggott (536-6962, ), who is a member of the Trash.

FRED BECKETT, organiser of the Burritt Dances and a super caller, recently participated in a program that was sponsored by an Amsouth grant to support the performing arts at Powell School in Florence, AL. This included programs in drama and storytelling, as well as dance. Fred taught some 75 fourth graders to do the Virginia Reel and some square and circle dancing. They then presented programs for a school assembly as well as for the PTA. Thanks, Fred, for providing this opportunity for more folks to learn about country dance!

LOST & FOUND: See Fred if you've lost something at Burritt, or Harry, if it was at Eastside.
