WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The dance is over for the Kansas chapter of Polka Lovers Klub of America.

President Angie Kaiser announced in the group’s March newsletter that the club disbanded because of a lack of new members. She says about $16,000 in the club’s treasury has been given to charitable organizations.

The club was formed in June 1983 and had about 250 dancers. But most of the members are elderly and it also had trouble finding people to serve as officers.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1hsflTk ) the club’s photo albums were donated to the Barton County Historical Society in Great Bend.
