On Friday, Feb. 16, 2024 Single Trees celebrated our 60th birthday in high style. We had five squares on the floor at one time at least, with more dancers and friends visiting while watching the dancing or eating in the dining area.
Dale Roberson who called for us from 1986 to 1996 during our boom years came up from Sutherlin with his wife Betty and two members of his family to help us celebrate. While he did not call a tip for us, he stayed and talked with al the dancers who had once had the pleasure of dancing to his calling on a regular basis twice a month.
Besides this treat, we had a long time former member and former president of Single Trees, Florence Mulvihill, come to visit. She is no longer dancing but it was a pleasure to see her. Roseburg Buckeroos came with about a square of dancers. Whirl-Aways, our sister club at the hall, had many dancers there to enjoy the festivities and dance the night away.
Melba Walker and Joy Pitts, our vice president and president, did a great job hosting the dance and decorating beforehand.
It was a night to remember for sure. Craig Abercromie called and cued the dance for us and did an outstanding job. We love his calling and his positive attitude.
Here are some photos. I hope I got a good representation of everyone who came.
Next week we will have K.C. Curtis back to call for us. Sandy Harris will do the cueing. This should be a good dance as well. Please come and join us.
