Bank Display Features Square Dancing

The Checkerboard Squares have set up a square dance display at U.S. Bank in Gresham for the past couple of summers. Carrie B’s, a dance shop, provides a mannequin wearing a striking square dance dress. Literature on the table tells about square dancing and the club’s upcoming lessons. And a candy dish draws banking customers to the display. (Thanks, Jim, for filling the candy dish!)

Yes, the display is a bit of work. No, we don’t know of any new dancers who have resulted from the display…yet.

These attempts to keep square dancing in front of the public take time. Sometimes the results come years later. In the meantime, we can become discouraged. But as a square dance community, we have to continue the publicity.  As the Bible says, “In due season, you will reap…if you faint not.”
