  1. Our Western Hoedown/Chili Feed on Nov. 22 was  really fun.  We reverted to our former schedule taking a formal break mid-way to have homemade chili and cornbread made by various members.  There was some homemade cobbler (peach and blueberry) for dessert along with other cakes and cookies.  Thank you, members, for all your hard work.  Darrell Kalmbach came down to call for us along with his wife Erin.  Erin won the split the pot and was elated.   Darrell called a great dance keeping us on our toes all night.  We are already looking forward to having him call next April. Jackie cued her best as always and had lots of round dancers on the floor.

After Christmas on Dec. 27 K.C. Curtis will call our 4th Friday dance for us with Jackie Gale cueing.  We are hoping many dancers will want to dance off those holiday calories with us so please come join us for a fun evening of square and round dancing.

We had a very successful Halloween dance with George Hermann calling.  He had on a very elegant pirate's costume made by his wife.  Kudos to

her.  We also had some other creative and fun costumes.

Our Nov. 8 dance was called by Jim Hattrick and cued by Jackie Gale.  We had three squares on the floor most of the time.  Everyone had a good time and many attended the Turkey Dance in Sweet Home the next night: Susan Mathers, Randy Graboyes, Gaynor Hintz, Suzanne Peterson, Renee VanDole, Alan Hurst, Joy Pitts, Rosco Isobel, Margaret McVey and Roger Tendick.  This dance was also called by Jim Hattrick and Jackie Gale and was very well attended with 11 squares on the floor for the opening tip.  Thanks, Squarenaders.  It was super good fun!

October 11, 2019 we will have a regular dance with our new hours 7:30 to 10:00.  Jim Hattrick will be calling and Jackie Gale cueing.  Jim comes all the way from Vancouver, WA to call for us once a month, and we love having him.  Last month he brought two of his protegees with him, Mark Wheeler and his newest one Melissa.  We had a really great time and hope to see more of them.  Our member Janet Geiger had the opportunity to call with Mark--good practice for her.

On Oct. 25 we will have George Hermann calling and Jackie Gale cueing
our Halloween dance.  We love to put on costumes and always every year are surprised by what Joy Pitts comes up with.  There will be prizes for best costumes.  We love George's calling and hope that some of his dancing friends from the IWW will come down with him.

We hope to see lots of visitors come and join us for these dances.

Sept. 13: Our fall dances got off to a great start with our Sock Hop with Jim Hattrick our 2nd Friday caller joined on stage by his new protegee Melissa and caller Mark Wheeler.  They all called well and did great harmony together.  Lots of poodle skirts, pedal pushers and white shirts were on the floor.  We always have a great time at our Sock Hops.  At the end of the evening we were all treated to root beer floats supplied by our Treasurer Joy Pitts who feels no Sock Hop is complete without a root beer float!
Betty Aukerman and Joy Pitts serve up the floats.
All three callers on stage with  three squares on the floor having a blast.
Sept. 27 - Dan Nordbye dance with Jackie Gale cueing.  This is your last chance to dance to Dan with the  Single Trees before he goes south for the winter!
