Join us for a fun evening.

December 14th Christmas Holiday Dance and Potluck

George Hermann returned to call for us on December 14th for our Christmas Holiday Dance and potluck.  Hermann hails from the Portland area and has been calling for more than 26 years.  He kept us moving all night and on our toes for sure.

And of course, our round dance cuer, Pat Hintz, got us spinning and twirling, dancing the two-step, waltz, fox trot, cha-cha, and jive. The potluck dinner at 6:30 was a big hit and the desserts were yummy. The hall decorations put us in a festive mood.

And we had a BIG visitation from the Independence Wagon Wheelers Square Dance Club. They dance in Rickreal at the Polk County Fairgrounds. Thank you for adding to our festive evening.
