Liz’s Café will be serving Brickoven Breakfast Pizzas, shakes, sweets and treats as well as traditional breakfast items and a great Barista Bar. The Ballroom Dance Preservation Society will feature a different dance instructor and dance style each week. This is your opportunity to meet and greet the area dance instructors and learn more about the Ballroom Dance Preservation Society.
