On January 10th, Jeff Stallings, Jim Young, and Ryan M. went down to St. John’s Episcopal Church for Pack 2819’s yearly arrow of light dinner. This was our second invitation to this event. After getting ready and outfitting our new dancer, we were introduced to the pack and performed an intertribal and sneak up for the scouts and their parents. Keeping it shorter than in the past, I know all of us dancers were sad that we were unable to be stumped by the rising scouts (though maybe for the best). We were able to point out our various mistakes that some of us made during the dances so that the younger scouts could better understand the various meanings behind what we were doing. Everyone did very well set aside the normal sliding across the floors and a misstep. I’d like to congratulate everyone for putting on another great show. These are our future members, and we are the ones who spread what we do. Good Job!
