2013 New Chauncey Soup ‘n Dance

Our 7th Annual NCNA Soup ‘n Dance was a whole lot of fun for every one. One of the very thoughtful  international students that attended the dance wrote:

I would like to convey my special thanks for the experience I was a part of today. I think I will speak for all of us international students that it was something never to forget. Special thanks also to the New Chauncey community for inviting us and having us be a part of their to their annual Soup and Dinner. Their hospitality was very heart-warming.

Looking forward to participating in more such experiences giving us insight into the American way of life!

Kind regards
Keith

It is especially heartwarming when we can have fun while building community with our student neighbors.

 

Tami Hammack organized the event and did a terrific job of organizing and inviting the neighborhood. The event once again went off without a hitch. Tami and her team treated us to a wonderful evening….

2012 Soup ‘n Dance

New Chauncey Came Out in Style!

Our 6th Annual NCNA Soup ‘n Dance was held at the Morton Community Center in West Lafayette and the attendance was great.

Tami Hammack once again organized the event and did a tremendous job of organizing and inviting the neighborhood. Her team of recruits had the main room at the Morton Center set up and ready well before the 6 o’clock start. A big and heartfelt THANKS to Tami and her team!

The food was wonderful and the dancing was a lot of fun. We had a great group of all ages who danced and enjoyed each others company. It was a really fun time for all.

Barry Rubin and his fellow musicians were back and really made the event fun and kept things moving. There’s nothing like live music to listen and dance to.

 

2011 New Chauncey Soup ‘n Dance

Our 5th Annual NCNA Soup ‘n Dance held at the Morton Community Center in West Lafayette turned a cold blustery night into a warm evening of food and fellowship.

Tami Hammack once again did a tremendous job of organizing and inviting the neighborhood. Her team of recruits had the main room at the Morton Center set up and ready well before the 6 o’clock start. A big and heartfelt THANKS to Tami and her team!

A lively group turned out for the dancing and wide assortment of soups, salads, and desserts made for great eating. Of course we Barry Rubin and his fellow musicians provided great sounds and calling. The walk through prior to each dance made sure that everyone was on the same page (well at least sort-of on the same page). But that is most of the fun.

This year’s live music included the initial performance of James Claven with the group. It’s always nice to have new, young talent added to a neighborhood event. Good times.

2010 Soup ‘n Dance

The 4th Annual NCNA Soup ‘n Dance was held at the Morton Community Center in West Lafayette. The turn out was the best ever with more than 70 friends and neighbors coming in from the cold to enjoy the evening. The wide assortment of soups, salads, and desserts were fantastic. (Now, if we could have only kept the parents from eating the desserts before their dinner, the night would have been perfect). A big thank you goes out to Tami and Marcus for handing the arrangements and hosting the event.

Of course we greatly appreciate the support from Panera Bread – as always a taste treat from their store in the Wabash Landing.

Barry Rubin and his fellow musicians provided the LIVE MUSIC and it was a great time of family-oriented fun for all.

We owe a debt of gratitude to Tami & Marcus Hammack for putting this event together for the Neighborhood.

And this year we had a birthday celebration as well.
