The Mark Moorehead Memorial student dance was a success on 1/24

We had up to 8 squares dancing to caller Tom Strickland at our Mark Moorehead Memorial dance and in those 8 square were 8 students. The night was blustery out side but Tom Strickland warmed us up with his dance calls and every one that I talked to had a fun time. I have uploaded the pictures that I took at the dance to our Mark Moorehead album at

Successful banner raid at Circulators

With January 18th  being Tom Strickland’s birthday the solo’s surprised him by showing up at Circulators for his dance and consequently had a successful banner raid. Thanks to Gary, Carolyn, Susan, Spanky, Betty, Marilyn, Norm, Sherrie, Beverly, Caroline, Frank, Barb and Bob for making it to Circulators. Susan and Marilyn provided birthday cakes for Tom Strickland. A correction! Susan informed me that she did not provide a lemon cake for Tom but it was Caroline that provided the cake.

Successful banner retrivial at Brecksville —- Updated

On 1/17 we successfully retrieved our banner from Brecksville with 11 Solo’s attending the dance called by Mike Sumpter. Thanks to Bob, Barb, Terry, Bill, Susan, Spanky, Frank, Lenny, Carolyn, Gary, Ron and Jan. I hope that I did not miss anyone but if I did please except my apologies and my thank you for being there. I think that there was 6 squares up and dancing with 2 squares during the hot hash. I updated the name list with Gary’s name thanks to Barb’s memory.

The first dance of 2014 has come and is gone.

John Ramsey called our first Plus level dance of 2014 on 1/10 and we danced 5 squares at times. Broken Wheel came with enough to raid our banner which was great to have them with us as usual. Caroline won the cake walk prize which was brought by Carolyn

Our theme of the evening was PJs and Pies so several of our members and guests showed up in their jammies which you can see below in the picture that was taken at the dance.

The free dance pass given to a member that had donated refreshments for the snack table went to Lori and then Lori drew my wife’s ticket for the 50/50 drawing.
