Under The Silver Moon Page One
Bob & Donna are in Virginia so we got there a little early to assist Vicky and Irene who where already hard at work setting things up! Hats off to the Elks staff as they jumped right in and assisted in whatever Vicky needed.
Get ready because tonight we are dancing "Under The Silvery Moon" with the Wyatt Haup band!

Did You Know? - The symbolic moon facts can be found in alchemical teachings wherein the moon is a facet of silver. In the ever-parabolic perspective of the practicing alchemist, we know silver is symbolic of clarity, purity, and brilliance.
Getting set up for sixty members and guests this evening requires planning.

Did You Know? - The Moon always shows Earth the same face! The Moon is in synchronous rotation with Earth. Its near side is marked by large dark plains (volcanic 'maria') that fill the spaces between the bright ancient crustal highlands and the prominent impact craters.
Love those bright colors.
