April 2015 Dances

10th - Spring Bonnet Dance with Jim Voll calling and Christina Corelli cueing. There will be prizes for the neatest hats … remember the song "In your Easter bonnet with all the frills upon it?"  Well, that's where this dance theme came from. Plus dancing from 7:30 pm to 8:00 pm. From 8:00 pm to 10:30 pm will be New Dancer Level to help out those new dancers Jim Voll is now teaching. So come and have a great time - Jim will make it interesting.

24th - for this dance Terry Halley will be our caller for squares and Christina Corelli will again do the cueing for the round dances. We expect at least one square from the Salem Swinging Stars to visit that night, so ST members, please remember to bring your finger foods. It should be a very good dance.

25th - Hall Clean Up Day - inside and outside to start at 9:00 am to whenever. Bring implements of choice and let's spruce the place up! If you can only give an hour, it will be much appreciated. "Many hands make light work."

25th: 12:45 to 1:15 Square Dance Demo at Lane County Fairgrounds (the four clubs involved are trying to get 2 squares together for this - see Shirley if you are interested). Table for "Dare to Dance Square" going on all day from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm and we need people to man the table. So help with the hall cleanup if you can and then pop on over to the Fairgrounds and wear your T-shirt "Dare to Dance Square.  If you don't have one, perhaps you can pick up a $6 T-shirt at the next dance, or get a button from Janet and some cards from Christine Beneda. Let's make our club grow again.

March 2015 Dances

Friday, the 13th will be our combined Black Cat and St. Patricks Day dance.  The very fun black cat portion of the dance has someone dressed as a black cat going around to all the squares while the lights are out and only black light is on for a few of the dances. Wear a bit of white so we can find you in the dark. White gloves help the dancers a lot. You can also wear green for the St. Patricks day theme. Seems like those green and white Single Tree colors would work just right.

Terry Halley will be the caller for this dance - a good singer/caller with some excellent music. We are also glad to have Christina Corelli as our cuer for the evening. And members, please remember those finger foods for the break.

Friday, March 27th Lennie Ludiker will be our caller and Jackie Gale will do the cueing. This will make for a really fun dance!

Other Dances:

March 7th - Danebo Circle 8 is 65 years old - join them in this special dance with pre-rounds at 7:30 pm and mainstream starting at 8:00 pm. Roger Putzler is the caller and Christina Corelli is cueing.

March 14th the Whirl-A-Ways will be hosting a "partial" new dancer dance. Plus will start at 7:30 pm. At 8:00 pm there will be an hour of new dancer level. For the rest of the evening, mainstream and new dancer level will alternate. This is themed as a "pajama dance" so interesting PJ outfits will be on many dancers. This could be really fun - give it a whirl!

March 28th is a Single Trees visitation night. Check the visitation schedule from the menu bar.

Members, please bring food before 6:30 pm, if you can, so we can set it out and start the potluck on time. We will need lots of main dishes and salads and some finger foods as well and a few desserts. We will be needing lots of assistance that night for setup and cleanup, so let Sharon know what you will be able to do.  Gaynor has sent an email regarding that to those members who have emails.

And anyone else who is attending for the dinner, if you would like to bring a potluck dish, we would really appreciate it since several of our members are recovering from surgery and are unable to attend.
