Dance Music Jam Sessions @ Goff Hall
May 20 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Dance  Music Jam Sessions @ Goff Hall | Rehoboth | Massachusetts | United States

The dance music jam sessions continue in Rehoboth every Sunday night from 7-9 p.m. All are welcome!

Once a month throughout the year, the session is a Community Dance, at which we teach everything that needs teaching, depending on the experience of the dancers. The Community Dances go from 7 to 9 p.m. and are preceded by a potluck at 6 p.m.

All Jammers dances are held on Sunday nights from 7 to 9 with a potluck at 6 p.m.

For information or to check about cancellations, call Bob Elliott at 774-644-1369 or email him at bobolinkelliott@yahoo.com.

The Sunday Night Jammers are a group of (mostly) instrumental (mostly) musicians, who play (mostly) Celtic-inspired dance music. Our music is (mostly) for couple dances, such as waltzes, hambos, polkas, and schottisches.

Now, to clear up those “mostly”s:
1) Sometimes we sing…or at least some of us sing.
2) Some of us are very serious musicians, some are duffers, many are in between. We are VERY polite about each other’s errors.
3) We started with English, Scottish, Irish, Canadian, and New England dance music, but we have gotten more international as the months go by.
4) After Scandinavian and German couple dances, a few Israeli line dances appeared, followed by some Greek and Balkan dances with “interesting” time signatures.

In brief, all of us have learned a lot, and we welcome others to come play, teach, learn, and, in general, have fun!

About the event:

The Seventh Annual Esophageal Cancer Walk/Run is hosted by The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity working to raise awareness, encourage early detection and to fund research of esophageal cancer…in hopes of a cure.™

In 2015, The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation was able to award esophageal cancer research funding for the very first time! Since 2015, over twenty researchers have inquired about funding.

The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation has also raised national AND international awareness since 2011. Your continued support directly impacts and sustains this mission!

The path at Warwick City Park is approximately three miles and guests are encouraged to walk or run at their own pace as the event is a walk/run and not a timed race.

The former address at Warwick City Park was: Asylum Road, Warwick, RI. The new address is Steven O’Connor Blvd., Warwick, RI.
Ready to make an even bigger impact?

When you register for the event, you will be asked if you’d like to create your own fundraising page. This is a great way to help raise more awareness of esophageal cancer and funding for this life-saving mission.

Learn the facts about esophageal cancer

-Esophageal cancer has increased over 600% and is considered the fastest growing cancer in the US.
-Risk factors include:
· Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD, acid reflux, chronic heartburn),
· obesity,
· poor nutrition,
· tobacco use,
· excessive alcohol use,
· Barrett’s esophagus.
-As one of the deadliest cancers, esophageal cancer has an overall five year survival rate of only 18.8%.
-There are no routine or standard screenings to improve early detection of esophageal cancer.
-Symptoms often arise late, once the cancer is considered advanced or “distant” (spread to lymph nodes and other organs.)
-Stage IV esophageal cancer has a survival rate of only 4.6%.
-Despite all of these facts, esophageal cancer research is extremely underfunded.

Make a difference!
