Note from Tom: At the Mather, the doors will open at 7 p.m., with dancing to commence at 7:30 p.m.—or earlier, if the numbers are good. Please bring clean shoes to use on the perfect hardwood floor. We want to be good guests. There will be no charge, but if, by chance, we have live musicians, bring some cash for a tip. Parking is available on the street, with few restrictions after 6 p.m. Be advised that the Mather will ask you to sign in and out at the door, and they ask that you sign a waiver of liability, which will be in the fitness center along with name tags.
