ONCJC is proud to be a member of the American Bop Association. The ABA is a national non-profit organization that is in alignment with our Club philosophies. Club members regularly attend wonderful ABA events near and far and have found many friends during these past 15 years.

ONCJC Club Apparel
At every second Wednesday night dance is Club Shirt Night and our monthly celebration of member birthdays (cake is provided). Of course the wearing of club shirts is optional as seen in many of the photos seen on this site.

We wear our club shirts, jackets or hats and tote our club shoe bags with pride while attending dance and other events or just anywhere. Don’t have club apparel?Frown Not a problem, they can now be purchased online from Embroidery On Demand.
