Hi Everyone!  It's Halloween time!  This Thursday's Swing Centro is a special Halloween Monster Bash!  Then, the following Wednesday -- Halloween night 10/31 -- at the Gulfport Casino is our 6th Annual Halloween Costume Ball!  See below for details.  (By the way, if you can't see the cool Halloween graphics in this email newsletter, you're missing out; please enable images & links in your email program.)  --Sam

P.S. A big thank-you to all who attended last weekend's 7th Anniversary events with Dr Zoot... both events were a blast and the band was outstanding!  We hope to have photos up within a week.
