NOT JUST COUNTRY LINE DANCING -
1st Sat of the month Dances + occasional Worshops
Catholic War Veterans' Hall. 161 Center Street. Pine Bush, New York
Thank you to all who have helped us support our Troops in the past...we look forward to seeing each and every one of you again! 
we just LOVE meeting new people!! 

Here's a little background info on Not Just Country Line Dancing:
We originated in April, 2004, in order to help Catholic War Vets Post 1937 continue its charitable works. 
All class proceeds benefit the Post for assorted charities, including the Soldiers' Fund.
This Fund has enabled the War Vets to ship hundreds  of "care" packages, weighing 20-25 lbs. each, to our servicemen & women in Iraq & Afghanistan, along with more than 50 baskets of necessities for the Wounded Warriors Program at West Point. 
All the donations from this workshop will go directly to the Soldiers' Fund.  Please come help support our Troops!
