August 14th - Caller: Terry Halley, Cuer: Jackie Gale. Glad to welcome back Terry for another fun dance. Jackie Gale will be our cuer for 2015-2016, so come and dance to her rounds. Remember finger food all you Single Trees!  With most of the clubs dark in the summer, we expect a good turnout.

August 28th - Hot August Nights / End of Summer Dance. Sandy Harris will be calling and cueing. A great time should be had by all with the many-talented Sandy Harris. Can't think of anything better to do to spend a hot August night - and there are always plenty of refreshments.

And see "Cleaning the Hall" below.

Cleaning the Hall

Ready for anything!
These are going to be spotless!
Spray, spray, spray.
At 8:00 a.m. Saturday morning, August 1st, a bunch of square dancers showed up to clean the front (and side and back doors and lights) of the Emerald Square Dance Hall. There were more cobwebs in the eaves, on windows and door frames, and dirt on the walls than one can imagine. When it was done it looked like it had been painted. We can again be proud of our square dance hall which will now be an inviting vision for visitors. 

Clean it up!
Get that dirt!
Should we do that too?
Thanks to John Pape and his power washing equipment (and cleaning the concrete  sidewalk as well), Terry Nelson and his hosing down the walls and lights, Leah Firth for cleaning up everything they left behind on the ground,  Shirley Marc for dealing with cobwebs around doors and other parking lot refuse, and John Dilg for his window washing expertise, and Michael and Diane Burt for their work and for overseeing the whole process. Yay Team!
