We have more sad news this week, from Arthur Ferguson, husband of 32 years to Nancy Hanssen. Nancy passed away on August 20th, after a brief illness. She was kept comfortable under the care of hospice for the last few weeks. Nancy gave much to our dance communities – was a past president of NEFFA and among other things ran the festival performer table for many years. She and Arthur were frequent attendees at CDSBC Pinewoods weekends. They were chairs of the English Dance Committee for years, and both had longstanding connections to The Revels as well. Thought is being given to a memorial at a later date. Her obituary can be found at legacy.com
