We are sorry for the confusion.

First summer dance of 2014 with Mike Sumpter calling

We were dancing in the basement of the Berea Masonic Hall in comfortable air-conditioned air. We had as many as 4 squares up for a couple of tips but mainly danced with 3 squares. We had recently graduated students from Solo’s, Lake Erie and Brecksville. Dave Graf won the 50/50 and Marilyn Ostroske won the free dance pass that we give to one of the dancers that donate food for our snack table.

After the dance we had a short club meeting to elect the officers for the 2014-2015 dance season. the results of the elections was:
President — Bob Davis
Vice President — Erika Toth
Secretary — Norm Ostroske
Corresponding Sec. — Patricia Kilbane
Treasurer — Charlie Dunfee
Asst. Treasurer — Denise Adler
Member at Large — Betty Clay
Member at Large — Joan Strifler

Thank you, Betty Clay and Joan Strifler for serving on the nominating committee this year.

Solo Square Dance club dance on 5/23 with Tom Strickland

We had six squares up dancing at one time at the dance and had enough to dance seven but did not have enough guys that could dance the ladies part, now that is a switch as there usually not enough guys.

We had dancers from Hubs, Brecksville, Broken Wheel, Buckeyes, North Coast, Johnny Appleseed, Marschmellows and Lake Erie who banner raided. I hope that I did not miss any clubs as I lost the sheet that I wrote that information onto. Thanks for coming everyone.

Ruth Ann from Lake Erie won the cakewalk prize that was provided by Betty Clay, Barb Davis won the free pass for providing snacks and Ray Marsch from Marschmellows won the fifty-fifty drawing.

This will be the last dance being held at St. PaulĀ  until September 2014. Our Summer dances will be at the Berea Masonic Hall just across the parking lot from St. Paul Lutheran Church.

A successful Banner Raid of Medina on 4/4

Eight Solo dancers danced to Dick Mackey at Medina Squares on 4/4/2014 and since they did not have our banner (my mistake) we had a successful Banner Raid. The dancers from Solo’s that raided were Sherrie, Beverly, Jeff, Bert, Don, Shelby, Barb and me. At one time there were 5 squares up and dancing and a couple of Medina students trying their hand at a dance
