NO VALENTINE'S DANCE IN 1994 Margarita and Dorothy have been veteran ringleaders of the volunteer Womynspace dance committee for the past five or six years. About two years ago, LIB (Lesbians In Business) began co-sponsoring the Halloween and Valentine's dances with Womynspace. Due to exhaustion and the financial headaches of locating facilities for the dance, Womynspace and LIB will not produce a Valentine's dance this year. Thanks and kudos to all the energetic hard working women who have made the dances possible over the years. If you are interested in volunteering to produce dances for the women's community in the future, write Womynspace at P.O. Box 980601, Houston, Texas 77098.
