Tuckahoe Update 7-17-2018

WOW!!! Last Friday Jimmy Roberson called our “Rock & Roll Dance” and we had one of the best square dancing evenings. There were seven squares dancing most of the night. We had numerous guests from several clubs. Many ladies had on their “Poodle Skirts” and guys in their jeans and t-shirts, and others in various 50’s attire. We even had “Lucille Ball” dancing with us!! Thanks to Ken Moore who captured it all with group pictures. Everyone was smiling, laughing and just having a great fun evening. Scout provided the “Rock & Roll” décor and banner dedicated to Jimmy as well as yummy refreshments with mini-record cupcakes also dedicated to Jimmy. It was quite festive with the 50’s décor and posters of Elvis, the King of Rock & Roll!! Thanks to Jimmy and Scout, we had a fun “Rock & Roll” Square Dance night!!

Tuckahoe Update 7-10-2018

Last Friday we had another fantastic dancing evening celebrating “Independence Day” with Jeremy Butler. We always have fun when Jeremy is calling for us. We had five squares on the dance floor most of the night. Everyone was wearing their Red, White and Blue in celebration of Independence Day. Diane was there leading the line dancing. We also celebrated July Birthdays and Anniversaries. Eva and Jean provided the refreshments with a “Happy Birthday USA” cake, shrimp, and yummy snacks. It was definitely a fun night. Thanks to Jeremy, Diane, Eva and Jean.

This Friday Jimmy Roberson will be here calling our “Rock & Roll Dance”. This will be Jimmy’s last time to call for us as he will not be traveling in the future. So everyone put on your poodle skirts, rolled-up jeans, slicked back hair, and 50’s attire!! We will have a fun Rock & Roll Square Dance night!!

We had our newest member, Kenny Rowe call a tip acappella which added to our dancing evening.
