Valentines Dance at Glen Echo
February 16, 2002
Ellen and Marc put on a GREAT Valentines Dance at Glen Echo, featuring the RKO Swing Orchestra The event was well-attended, and if you peruse the photos, the idea was to wear RED. We were very impressed with Steve and Cindy --- Steve had his new Zoot Suit custom-tailored. he really looks sharp!

Trip to New Market
March 9, 2002
We went to new Market on March 9 with a gang of Lindy Hoppers to attend the monthly swing dance at the New Market (Va) community center. Jump Alley was the band. We were very pleased to see our friends down there including the lovely Libby Wightman and artist Keith Rocco.
On the way, we had a lovely time in the scenic Shenandoah Valley, including an interlude at the Neems Crossing Bridge, one of the few covered bridges remaining in the country, and at 200 feet span, the longest in Virginia. I can remember when these things were everywwwwhere in Pennsylvania and it was a great thing to gun your motor and revel in the echo as you drove through. I also have memories of going through one of these on a Hay Ride. Does anyone have Hay Rides anymore???
We had some great meals --- the Southern Kitchen in New Market is great, and our lunch at Sal's in Edinburgh was spectacular.
The vintage and antique shopping is just fantastic --- here are pictures of the amazing 1960s hair dryer and the RCA 811K console radio that we found.

King Teddy at the Cowboy Cafe
March 16, 2002
We headed over to the Cowboy Cafe to catch a few sets by the up-and-coming Louis Prima-influenced rock/swing band King Teddy. We were joined by a number of dancers, who were definitely not disappointed. Of special note was Ed Fei, who brought his LOVELY daughter Yvonne to the event.
