Bedford Park resident gets society's highest award
The Royal Scottish Country Dance Society (RSCDS) has recognised Bedford Park resident Jerry Reinstein with the society’s highest award – the Scroll of Honour for services to Scottish Country Dancing. Chiswick Scottish is affiliated to the RSCDS.
At the society’s AGM and conference weekend held in Perth and in front of a worldwide delegate audience, Chairman John Wilkinson presented the RSCDS Scroll of Honour to Jerry.
Born in New York, Jerry is the vice-chairman of the Chiswick Scottish Country Dance Club and has been dancing for more years than he cares to remember. He first danced in San Francisco and is a founder, with his (French) wife Danielle, of the Paris RSCDS Branch as well as also serving on the London RSCDS Branch Committee. On receiving the scroll he said:
"Scottish country dancing has been a very important part of my life for such a long time and has been the source of so many friendships and such great fun. I am honoured to receive this RSCDS scroll recognising my contribution over many years and in many different places."
With a growing membership, Chiswick Scottish Country Dance Club continues its Autumn season of classes and social dancing at St Michael & All Angels Church Hall, Bath Road, London W4 1TT next to Turnham Green Underground Station.
Chiswick Scottish Club Chairman Michael Nolan says:“We are absolutely delighted that Jerry has been honoured in this way. His knowledge of and contribution to Scottish Dancing has been and remains immense, we are very proud of him and are fortunate to have him as our Vice Chairman. On behalf of Chiswick Scottish Country Dance Club we congratulate Jerry.”
Over eighty Scottish Country dancers will gather at Chiswick Community School on Sunday 7th December for Chiswick Scottish Country Dance club’s annual “Kilts and Posh Frocks” dance. Members and friends of the thriving Chiswick Scottish Country Dance Club will celebrate the end of autumn term with their popular Christmas celebration.
