Good Day to you all,
Sandra Rocha invited us to attend Club Milonga on Tuesday October 31st 2017 which was Halloween Night and they (Club Milonga) were having a pot luck milonga party after the lesson which Sandra was teaching. It was also Sandra’s birthday and so we said we would go so as to celebrate both Sandra’s birthday as well as to enjoy the Club’s party.
Pam considered baking a cake for their pot luck table but as we had no idea as to what others may or may not bring, we opted to take some Armstrong Old Cheddar plus grapes and crackers as this combination was always a popular combination when we provided it for WE Tango. It turned out be popular at the Club Milonga party too as it all disappeared rather quickly along with all of the other food. There was some forty plus people in attendance that night.
Before setting off for Club Milonga via the subway we stopped off to see our grand- daughter’s “Angel” Ella and “Wonder Woman” Sophie and provide them with treats.
Attending Club Milonga brought back many pleasant memories as I had been the President back in 2005 and prior to that the Treasurer. We stopped attending a year or so later when we were advised by T.G.H. that Pam needed radiation treatment and we never got back into regular attendance at Club Milonga after the treatments ceased.
I was going through my filing cabinet a couple of weeks ago and came across many of my old files from when I was on the executive there including a group photo that was taken during my presidency there. It is quite amazing when I look at the picture as to how many people who were in the photo are still very much into tango. I also noted from one of my Attendance Statistics sheet from June to December 2005 that attendance ranged from a low of 46 to a high of 101 with an average of about 60 over the six month period. There was not as many Argentine Tango Milonga/Lesson options back than as there is today.
LIFE IS GOOD
