Sundays, Beginning Jan. 6 at the Newcomb Town Hall at 6 p.m. Sevillana Dance is an old folk dance, danced by couples of all ages and sexes during celebrations (fiestas or ferias), often by whole families and 'pueblos'. Sevillana choreography is very stable, and knowing it is very useful, since it is a fiesta dance. This is why learning flamenco usually starts with this particular dance: it is easy to reach a particular level and there are many occasions for practice and training. It is an attainable skill to young and old, whether you have dance experience or none at all! If you can walk you can dance Sevillana. Its also a great way to lose weight as well as socialize! $4 for adults, $2 for students. Refreshments provided. Call Michelle @ 582-2008 for more information. Help Wanted: Summer 2008

We are pleased to welcome the newest Newcomb family member: Rowan Kathryn Hai. Born Dec. 20, 2007, 6 pounds 13 ounces, 20 1/2 inches long. Rowan joined us a few days early. Toward the end, we spent several weeks of some suspense from low amniotic fluid levels and much testing; all's well that ends in a healthy baby and mom. We are doing well and hope your holidays and new year are wonderful! - Stacy, Paul, Lauren, and Rowan Hai Newcomb Friends Near and Far By Marvin Bissell
