Rockwood Grange Now Air Conditioned

In spite of the cool, rainy weather, the summer square dance season is here. At the Checkerboards’ summer dances, that means casual dress. You’ll see a little of everything in the summer months: shorts, capris, prairie skirts, short-sleeved shirts on men, as well as traditional square dance dresses complete with petticoats.  “I like my petticoats,” a woman told me last summer; she wore dresses with petticoats at every dance. And she wasn’t alone.

Now that the Rockwood Grange is air conditioned, temperature no longer has to influence your choice of dress. The building is a great place to be on a hot summer Saturday night. See you dancing.

  1. Nice remarks about the Rockwood Grange. We have put a lot of work into fixing it up for the people who rent the building. Hats off the the Checkerboard Squares and the Country Capers for helping out. The other renters also do their part in helping keep it clean. Our air-conditioning is working like a charm – so come – dance and chill out. Our dance club also serves a lot of great foods at break with plenty of hot coffee, tea and ice cold water for your enjoyment. We have a lot of fun at the dances, so come and join us for a great time.
    See you in a square…..Tony
