We had a great time at our 50th birthday and sweetheart dance and enjoyed the company of lots of visitors from other area (and further away) clubs.  Thanks to all who attended to help us celebrate our landmark club birthday.

February 2014 Dances

A few smiling faces from our 2013 Birthday Dance
Friday, Feb. 14th - Sweetheart of a 50th Birthday Dance with caller Les Seeley and cuer Jackie Gale. This is going to be a wonderful dance that you will not want to miss. Les has called several of our birthday dances that have always had excellent attendance and all had a very good time.

This is a very special birthday dance for Single Trees - given that it is our 50th, and it is on Valentines Day as well. How cool is that! Plus will start at 7:30 with mainstream and rounds alternating at 8 pm. We go until 10:30, so there is always lots of dance time.  We will have a special cake at the break to celebrate, as well as all sorts of neat finger foods. So come join us.

Friday, Feb. 28th will be another very good dance with Craig Abercrombie calling. (He might be cueing the round dances as well. There will be an update on the website if there will be a different person for cueing rounds. Dance times are the same as above. Craig is a fun caller you all know, and the music he plays is really good and upbeat. What a wonderful month of dancing we will have!

Square Dance Graduation Party was a success!

Bob & two of the grads
Bob's Rowdy Rookies graduated from square dance lessons and we had a party. Lots of people came to celebrate the new dancers and to have fun with our area callers including Bob Ewing (his last time teaching square dancing), Kirby Goode, and Larry DuPray.

 Believe it or not we had
four squares and a few more people on the sidelines. Unfortunately, some of the new dancers couldn't attend, but we all had a good time, anyway - there was cake - and what a nice cake it was (carrot).

Happy Dancing!

January Square Dance!

Roger Putzler calling
Jan 10th - New Dancer Dance with Roger Putzler calling and Sharon Greenman cueing.
Come and enjoy dancing with our new dancers who are just finishing up their lessons this month. And remember to bring finger foods for our break time. Dance starts at 7:30 pm. Not sure if they are starting with plus because of the type of dance this is.

Please note we are dark the 4th Friday in January due to Mid-Winter festivities. Hope you all attend Friday or Saturday, or both.  Enjoy!
