Thanks Jeremy, Diane, and Nance for a fun dance.

Tuckahoe Update 4-18-2018

Hi Tuckahoe Square Dancers,

We had a fun Spring Dance with David Staples calling and Christina Eum cueing. We always enjoy having Christina cueing for us and starting the evening with rounds. This was David’s farewell dance for the Richmond area as he will no longer be traveling this far. He will be spending more time locally to be with his family/grandchildren and enjoying activities with them. There were dancers from several clubs around the area joining us for lots of dancing and enjoyment. We had delicious refreshments, snacks and cakes to enjoy provided by the Tuckahoe Squares members. Thanks to David, Christina, and the Tuckahoe Squares members for a fun evening.

GRADUATION:
A huge “Thank you” to Gene for teaching square dance lessons again for Tuckahoe Squares. We are so lucky for having Gene and his talents,
“The Best Teacher” !!!!

Our “Graduation” dance and party for the students was super fun last night!!  There were four squares on the floor with everyone smiling, laughing, and enjoying as Gene put us through the paces for the last time. Deby presided over the graduation ceremony presenting the students with their certificates and sharing with them that square dancing was “friendship, family, friends and fun”. She recognized our students, Mark and Heidi, Allen, Michael, Debbie and Kate and presented them with a special folder of information, 2018 dance schedule and membership. For Allen, Michael, Heidi and Mark, who are joining Tuckahoe Square Dance Club, they were presented their name badges. Also recognized were our faithful “Angels” (who attended 10 or more classes) and presented them with an Angel dangle representing our appreciation for being there to assist the students. Also thanks to all the Angels who came to classes. We could not do without them!!  Dave was there watching over the squares for his last time to be sure seasoned dancers and students were partnered up equally. We are going to miss Dave who has been assisting square dance lessons for 4 years. Hopefully he will be an Angel in the future. Also, thank you Dave for the “Graduation” cake.

A Special “Thank you” to Deby and Dave, 1st VPs and Co-Chairs for dance lessons, and “Angels” for a great square dance class!!

NOTE:  For information or questions on 2018-2019 square dance lessons, see Deby or Davia.
