Dwight Fine:
Sadly, Boots in Squares will be adding a new badge to the memorial panels. We recently lost Alec Kohlervega, who danced with us off and on for about 10 years, and also danced with the local group Windmill Twirlers. I have attached an obituary, and a photo cropped from a Windmill Twirlers convention photo. Alec used several different last names in his lifetime. We knew him as Kohlervega, which will be the name on the badge; the obituary uses the name of his late husband, Kady.
