Don’t forget to save the date for our New Year’s Eve contra dance with Susan Petrick calling to the music of Uncle Farmer!
Has connecting with friends on the dance floor made your life sweeter? Organizing dances is a lot of work, and the Sacramento Country Dance Society can always use more help! Volunteering is a great way to form stronger bonds with our community. If you’ve been enjoying our dances, here are some opportunities to give back.
First, you can support SCDS financially through the links on our Donations page. We are a 503(c) organization, so all your contributions are tax deductible. The rules for tax deductions are likely to change in 2018, so take advantage of this tax break while you can.
You can even improve our finances without giving any money yourself. SCDS uses Amazon Smile. If you sign up with SCDS as your charity through that link, a small part of the amount you spend comes to SCDS every time you shop, at no charge to you. Sign up today, and buy your holiday presents through the smile.amazon.com link.
Second, SCDS simply could not exist without volunteers. Whether you’d like to work the door at dances, be trained as a sound technician, help with publicity, or guide long-term strategy as a board member, there’s an opportunity waiting for you. Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, use your current skills, or learn new ones, and it’s lots of fun!
