Hello Dancers !
We’ve missed you so much! We hope that all of you have been staying well and enjoying life as best you can during this pandemic. We would like nothing more than to announce that we are opening our dance hall, but in an abundance of caution related to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 concerns, the suspension of dancing and other social activities at Colvin Run Dance Hall continues.
We have continued with some additional maintenance activities during this shutdown. Board members, with major help from several Colvin Run volunteers, continue to work on several maintenance and capital improvement projects:
Joe Manning removed the old linoleum flooring in the alcove and has overseen the project for the installation of solid oak flooring, which matches the oak dance floor.
Bill Rosenbluth continues to remediate the electrical system, being assisted by our volunteers, Jim Herold and Pete Kuempel.
The Board decided to remove the old, rusty non-functioning flagpole located at the front porch West side entrance steps and to replace it with a new flag and flagpole to be installed in a different location.
Jim Herold volunteered to purchase a new flagpole and flag, along solar lights, since we wanted to fly our flag 24/7. Jim also dug the hole and poured the cement in which to place the flagpole. The exciting news is that we raised the flag on November 7, 2020. In typical Colvin Run tradition, after the flag was raised, we all sang God Bless America! Photographs of this event will be placed on our website soon.
