Stardusters’ presidents Jim and Gigi Schlueter chose “Our Love Blooms in the Spring” as the theme for the April Spring dinner dance held at the San Gabriel Country Club. The featured dance of the evening was the rumba, making for a lively evening. A theme song for the evening was the well-loved standard, “Green Eyes.” The band, Swing 4 Sale, played more than enough swing dance music to keep everyone on their toes and on the dance floor all evening. Hot-pink cloths covered the dining tables, which were centered with bountiful bouquets of mixed spring flowers accented with sparkly curly-cue twigs.

So far it has been a soggy week. Our thirsty Southern California soil has welcomed the moisture even if some of us haven?t like the sloshing around. I have yet to figure out a way to get in and out of my car without getting me or the car soaking wet, even when using an umbrella. I believe there is a slick trick to it that I haven?t mastered yet. In spite of the fact that most of us Californians think that we might melt when raindrops hit us, the social activites are moving forward.

Echoing a theme of "Stars Over Havana," all the romance, fervor and excitement that was once the Cuban capital will be recreated in the open-air public Courtyard, infusing the event with an aura rarely recalled on these shores.
