    LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT Dear Friends, If you haven’t been on our website “LloydShaw.org” lately, you might want to take a look at what’s new. It may not be immediately apparent, but if you look at the banner just under the blue line all the way on the right you will see a new page listed. If you “clik” on the words “Publication (American Dance Circle)” you will be led to the American Dance Circle archives page. You can also get there by way of the “Resources” page. Once you “clik” on a specific year, a pdf file of that issue will start downloading. Each issue is preceded with a “Welcome” statement. After you read and scroll past it you will be led directly into that specific issue. WOW!! We have Cal Campbell to thank for this enor- mous contribution. He and Gardner Patton have been working on this project for some time. Cal said the digitization of American Dance Circle was one of the last projects in his “bucket of projects.” He presented it to the Board of Directors last summer to use as they saw fit. The BODs decided to make all but the most current four issues available on our website. Once some privacy concerns were ironed out Gardner and Neal Rhodes started working together to eke out the

    details. Neal, as some of you know, has supplied the means for our website for many years, and has recently become the webmaster for LloydShaw.org. He also serves as all-knowing tech guru that was responsible for making the LSF’s digitized recordings available on the website. Thank you, Neal. The foundation is truly blessed with the service of amazing members. As if the digitization of ADC and Cal’s lifelong contri- butions to the recreational dance world through LSF and CallerLab weren’t enough, he and Gardner have also digitized all of the issues of Sets in Order, and Square Dance magazines. Cal’s “project bucket” is certainly huge. Although this work can currently be accessed through the University of Denver, we hope to be able to offer DVD’s through the LSF soon. The ability for dance educators to access this material is a tremendous addition to the recreational dance world. That was some “bucket.” Congratulations, Cal, upon completing these enormous projects and THANK YOU! Gaye Fifer, Bill Wellington, and the rest of the committee are putting the final touches to Terpsichore’s Holiday. Please consider attending this year. This is a wonderful family event. Both of the LSF’s extended dance events, have the unique ability to seamlessly blend an amazing, diverse, adult dance program with a rich children’s traditional dance program. This has rarely, if ever been duplicated. I extend congratulations to the two new members of the LSF Board of Directors, Karen Parker and Bill Litchman. I only wish there had been three vacancies on the board. To Bill Wellington, let me just point out that I lost the first two times I ran for BOD. Gail Ticknor, continued to gently but earnestly encourage me to run again, and now I find myself writing this colu
