LEGACY at the NSDC in Charlotte, NC

LEGACY, the International Assembly of "Trustees" of the Square Dance Activity, once again participated in the 47th National Square Dance Convention's Showcase of Ideas in Charlotte, NC. The display had been completely updated with new pictures added. Also included was a United States map showing the 30 states that have officially recognized SQUARE DANCE as their State American Folk Dance. According to June Myklebust & Bob Dahnert who chaired this effort, and trustees who manned the display, much interest was shown in LEGACY.

In conjunction with the NSDC Executive Committee, LEGACY continued its practice of presenting daily leadership seminars at Charlotte. That Health & Fitness are a prime concern of many was shown when over forty dancers gathered Thursday afternoon to join Bob & Dottie Elgin of Harrison City, PA in discussing "Dancing for the Health of It".

At Friday's seminar, LEGACY Chairman, Doc & Peg Tirrell, gave a brief report on Thursday's SUMMIT Meeting of representatives from major organizations within the square dance activity as well as on the positive approach presented at the NSDC Organizational Round Table. This sparked a discussion on how LEGACY can interface with the major organizations. Ken & Helena Robinson, of Neshanic Station, NJ, explained the LEGACY Web Site and suggested additions were noted.

An overflow, eager to share, crowd assembled on Saturday when Bernie & Carolyn Coulthurst, editors of the Club Leadership journal, discussed "Marketing Your Product". Time passed all to quickly with discussions continuing out in the hall after the meeting.

LEGACY's next biennial Meeting (LEGACY XIV) will be conducted May 14 - 16, 1999 in Cleveland, OH. For more information about LEGACY XIV, or the organization itself, please consult the LEGACY office at 1100 Revere Drive, Oconomowoc, WI 53066.
