Checkerboard Squares Win Mid-Winter Ribbon

The Checkerboard Squares won a free Mid-Winter ribbon for being the club with the highest percentage of its members registered at the time of  the ribbon presentation. 

The Checkerboard Squares often eat together Saturday night at Pop's Branding Iron Restaurant in Albany.


The colossal salad brings a smile to Checkerboard Lee Putman.

At Mid-Winter, the club members had their annual Saturday dinner at  Pop’s Branding Iron. The restaurant has ample seating for large groups in the banquet room, so the club can sit together at one long table. After seeing the size of the salads, a new member said of Pop’s: “I can see why you guys like to eat here.”

Another Mid-Winter Checkerboard tradition is meeting for an after-after party following the evening square dances to enjoy visiting and munching snacks.
