Checkerboard Square Dance Club Turns 51

The Checkerboard Squares celebrated another happy anniversary on Nov. 12, 2011. Balloons and red, black and white crepe paper decorated the hall. Red cut-out letters proclaimed “51.” Club members wore their club outfits (red, black and white). The club served white cake with custard filling and a whipped cream frosting. Yes, the event was a party.

And like a typical party, the event also included guests…about six squares of dancers showed up. Twenty-one guests were from the Oaky Doaks (a big thank you to this club!). 

Former members came from as far away as Sisters, Ore., to dance and mingle. Roger Putzler called, and Ken Pratt cued.
