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!!
