    - The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Our Task Force is a privately funded organization whose purpose is to encourage participation on the National Day of Prayer. It exists to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and its families. The Task Force represents a Judeo-Christian expression of the national observance, based on our understanding that this country was birthed in prayer and in reverence for the God of the Bible.

    - The Club is dancing every Friday night at the Waxhaw American Legion Hall. The doors open at 7 PM and lessons start around 7:30 PM for approximately 60 to 90 minutes. Open dancing follows until close.

    We teach a new dance (sometimes two) every week. The new dance is then reviewed for two more weeks for a total of three weeks at which time the dance goes into rotation for our open dance session. Of course if it is a more difficult dance or our dancers need more instruction, we will continue to review it until we feel ready to add it to our open dance repertoire. We encourage our dancers to speak up during the lesson if anyone has a question about the step(s) or having difficulty with any portion of the dance to ensure everyone has a good time and doesn't get frustrated. Remember, there are no silly questions and we are all here to help each other.

    Member - $20.00 per person monthly membership dues (paid on the first Friday of the month) entitles member to all Friday night dances during that month.

    Associate Member - $12.00 per person monthly associate member dues (paid on the first, second, or third Friday of the month) entitles associate member to two Friday night dances in the same month that dues are paid.
