Mahoney-Net dance newsletter – April 6, 2023


Just an FYI:

This is a copy of the dance newsletter the Bill Mahoney sends out each week.

It covers dance events in Williamsport, Scranton, Harrisburg, Hershey, Lancaster, York . . .  and other "sorta-nearby" towns.


I believe MOST of you already are on his email list.  (Bill uses Mailchimp to send it.)

However, if you do NOT get this newsletter and you WANT to get it,—  then you need to contact Bill, and request him to be add you to the list.

| Thanks.   -  James Ingram, Cell 570-772-1323,
