An Interview with Dave Serfling by BDancewear.comDave Serfling

Dave Serfling was interviewed in July of 2016 by BDancewear.com for an article on thier Blog.

You can visit the entire interview here and leave a comment for them about it.

Unlike most of the studios we spotlight, The Rockin’ Horse Dance Barn in Renton, Washington, is an adult Social Dance Studio. They offer dance lessons in a variety of Ballroom, Country, Latin and Swing Dances as well as Line Dances. During the week there are lessons every night and some in the daytime. Friday nights provide a chance to have fun and dance. The night starts off with a dance lesson from 7 to 8 p.m. to get things warmed up. Then from 8 to 11 p.m., you can dance to a variety of music that works with all the types of dance taught during the week.

Rockin Horse Dance Barn installs Solar Panels

Rockin Horse Dance Barn installs Solar Panels

After several years of waiting for the prices to drop and saving up the money the Rockin’ Horse Dance Barn installs solar panels. Yes a new 9.9 kW Photovoltaic Solar Panel System. The first system was installed in 2009 with only 3.2 kW. So now the two systems combined will generate four times what the first one did.

The amount of electricity generated will only cover approximately half of the electricity needed/used but it’s a start and if the costs continue to drop maybe in the future another system will be added to be 100% self sufficient for electricity.

Single Mom oil change event

Single Mom Oil Change

New Life Church of Renton, WA on the Maple Valley Highway hosts a Single Mom oil change event twice a year where volunteers from the church set up a “Big Shop” in the church parking lot and service the cars of single moms in the local area.

Many of the cars’ only servicing is done at these events so it is a very helpful thing for these busy moms. Back in June 2015 the church donated a newer replacement car to one of the moms. She was overjoyed and brought to tears along with many of the volunteers.

Around 200 cars are serviced at each event including oil changes, wiper blade replacement, vacuum service, fluid refills, light bulb replacement, tire pressure adjustment and sometimes tire replacements.

The photo includes our Small Group from left Laurie Adams, Jimmi Serfling, Marshall Adams, Dave Serfling, Marcella Lawhon and Ron Lawhon. Missing from photo is Laura VanTrojen.
