Silver Fox Squares: March 2018 Updates

Another great month for our square dance clubs. We had a couple of great dances in Starke this month and many of our dancers have attended some of the special dances in the area.

We enjoyed seeing many old  friends at the Blue-Grey Dance in Lake City on February 17th. The dancers had a great time dancing to callers Bill Chestnut and Rod Barngrover.

The 64th Florida State Square and Round Dance Convention was held February 23rd & 24th in Daytona Beach. All of the dancers who attended had a wonderful time and many are already making plans to attend next year’s convention which will be held on February 22nd & 23rd, 2019.

The Silver Fox Squares will be holding a ‘Beginner’s Night’ for the First United Methodist Church. It is tentatively scheduled for Mid-April and the date will be announced on the Facebook page soon. We invite all square dancers to attend.

Big Barn Dance 2017

Tonight was our long anticipated Big Barn Dance. I think we can safely say we all had a wonderful night at the Barn Dance. The evening was about as perfect as it could be. The Barn was beautifully decorated with handmade quilts and the tables were so pretty with the club colors of silver, black, and white decorations. I won’t even go into all of the great refreshments we had from pasta salad, chicken, meatballs, pineapple casserole and so many delicious desserts! Then sitting together, talking around the fire, and roasting marshmallows was the perfect way to end such a wonderful event. Continue reading Big Barn Dance 2017

Silver Fox Squares: November 2017 Update

What a great month! We have had several wonderful dances at our new location.

You can find us on Fridays at the First United Methodist Church at 200 N. Walnut St. in Starke.

We held our first dance there on October 6th. We had some special visitors from NEFSARDA who joined us as we presented toys to the Basketball Cop. The toys had been collected at the 5th Saturday Dance in

September.

Then on October 13th we held a special Friday the 13th/Black Cat Dangle Dance. We had Mr. Ellis Lindsey as our guest caller. Some of the dancers dressed in costume. We had a great time dancing, to our favorite callers, with Yoda, a Devil, a Police Officer, and a couple of cute cats.

The ladies in Starke were ‘Pretty in Pink’ on October 27th in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A great time was had by everyone who attended.

We want to remind everyone to spread the word about The Big Barn Dance on December 2nd. We already have several people on the list but we need everyone to be sure and RSVP by November 24th so we can get a head count for refreshments. This is sure to be a dance to remember!

Silver Fox Squares: October 2017 Update

We had a rough start to the month of September and were forced to cancel dances in Starke and Ft. White due to Hurricane Irma. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those affected by the recent storms.

On September 22nd we had a dance and NEFSARDA came to retrieve the banner that our club had received at the previous 5th Saturday Dance in July. There was plenty of dancing and good times to be had by all.

Many of the dancers met afterwards at Powell’s Dairy Freeze for a bite to eat and some sweet treats. Everyone is always so very nice to us there.

During the week of the 29th we were informed that FEMA would be using the Bradford County Senior Center and all activities had been cancelled, which included our square dances.

Not to fear as arrangements were made  to start dancing at the First United Methodist Church at 200 N. Walnut St. in Starke.  (A map will be on page 3.) Our first dance in this hall will be on October 6th. We invite everyone to come out and join us as we will be having a very special guest. (See below for more information.)

September 30th was the 5th Saturday dance in Lake City with our very own callers Ken & Shane calling  and Ed Hauck was the cuer. (See page 2.)

A special thanks to everyone who has visited our club and supported us. Be sure to sign up for our email list if you haven’t already done so.

Also a big ‘Thank You’ to our club members for their teamwork and dedication to helping our clubs grow and prosper.

Silver Fox Squares: September 2017 Update

What another great month for the Silver Fox Squares!

On August 4th we had special guest caller, John Robbins, join us. He taught us some new calls and we are looking forward to having him visit again!

Then on August 12th the Silver Fox Squares joined the Silver Stars for a Potluck ‘Sound Check’ Dance at the Party Barn. Everyone had a great time and we want to thank Bill & Debbie Cassidy for inviting us out and allowing us to use their barn.

August 18th was our Sock Hop Dangle Dance. We rocked around the clock in our poodle skirts and saddle shoes. The guys had their hair slicked back and everyone had a blast.  Between tips we snacked on some RC colas and Moon Pies along with many other great refreshments supplied by our wonderful club member.

Many people ordered dangles and we will let everyone know when they are available for pickup.

We also met at Powell’s Dairy Freeze, as we do after many dances, and continued on with the fun and lively conversations.
