Thanks to 15 members we had a successful banner retrieval at Lake Erie Squares on Saturday 11/2. The members were Susan and Spanky, Caroline and Frank, Marilyn and Norm, Terry and Bill, Barb and Bob, Virginia and Gary, Sherrie, Beverly, Betty and Betsy. Thanks to everyone that attended. We have three more banners to retrieve:
The Solo’s club also received a certificate of Thanks from the Lake Erie club. They presented the certificates to other clubs also.
On October 25th we held the Halloween dance and danced 4 squares to Chris Jacobs most of the night. We had guests from Hubs, Brecksville, Lake Erie, Medina and North Coast. Hopefully I didn’t miss any club because I forgot to look at the sign in sheet.
Here is a picture of the dancers that came dressed for Halloween some more then others. Everyone had a good time and the snack table had quite a varied selection so nobody went away hungry.
On 10/11 we held our annual charity dance sponsoring “Believe in the Cure'” created by are own Beth Filina’s daughter-in-law Joanne Filinia. Thanks to our members and visitors we raised $351 that will be used here in Ohio to focus on adolescent and young adult cancer research along with providing funds to families that need assistance in paying the medical bills that pile up during cancer treatment. You can learn more about this charity at Joanne’s website BelieveInTheCure.org.
Our visiting clubs were Brecksville, Circulator’s who had a banner retrieval, Broken Wheel who banner raided, Lake Erie and Western Whirlers. There were times that we had 6 squares up at a time dancing to Mike Sumpter.
The cake walk prize was provided by Frank and Caroline Walters and was won by Sherrie. The fifty-fifty was won by one of the Circulator Square Dance members.
I have updated the “For our Students” webpage with the new calls that Tom taught on 10/7. The calls were
- Star Promenade
- Swing Thru
- Couples Trade
- (Named Dancers) Trade ( Centers trade, Ends trade… )
- Step to a Wave
We will start our first of three free introductory to Square Dancing sessions on September 9th. The sessions are free to all who come to learn more about Western style Square dancing. Come in casual dress and comfortable shoes by yourself or with someone as we have plenty of experienced Square Dancers to dance along with you. Enjoy the friendship of our club and a little low impact exercise of the body and mind.
The introductory sessions last through September and then the lessons start in October where you will learn more Square Dance calls then were taught during the introductory sessions. Lessons start promptly at 7 PM and last until 9 PM and cost $4 per lesson.
We hope to see you there!
The lessons are held at:
St. Paul Lutheran Church,
276 E. Bagley Rd,
Berea, Ohio 44017
Which is on the corner of Eastland and Bagley roads.
