Dear Line Dance Family,
To Our Wonderful CALI JAM LINEDANCE FAMILY!!!

First and forever, we thank you, Lord, for all the many blessings bestowed upon us…so many blessings that we can’t say enough about them and we can’t praise you enough, Dear Lord!!! Thank you and our LDF for allowing us to present $9,000 + to our scholarship recipients this year!!!

We want to thank our Cali Jam Crew & Friends who have worked tirelessly over the last several months to get everything ready….Tony Allen, Sharon Asher, Maidah Bey, Niecy Crawford, Ettamaria Ellis, Candy & Reggie Everett, Lawrence & Nikki Gilliam, Vera Spinks Hall (Razzi), LaVenia Johnson, Summer Johnson, Carla Lindsey, Karey Lindsey, Montel McClellan, Mary Roseburr, Shirlene Santiago, Cecelia Schumake, Chai Tee, Carolyn Tanner, Cheretta Thompson, Debora Ware, Teresa Wilson, TJ and Wilma Wright. Thanks also to our Volunteers, Roberta Ellis, Sharon Hill, and Victoria Jackson, who just stepped up out of the goodness of their hearts. Whether you were over at the house or at the hotel or the beach…..some making decorations until 1 am….or cutting out Route 66 signs, or carrying heavy equipment…or you were on kitchen duty for the beach party….or shopping for and putting together that magnificent candy buffet…or participating in the planning meetings….or putting in hours at the DJ desk, or putting together a display…or working the J&J booth….or manning the registration desk….or doing the J&J spotlight dance when you were scared beyond words….or running to the airport to pick up LDF…..or running interference for some problem that came up….or going shopping for some vital necessity….or relieving someone from their post so they might be able to take care of their own personal business….and for making us hear your executive decision which made the event run much more smoothly….WE THANK YOU!!
