The Silver Stars have had many great visitors from area clubs like the Dixie Dancers in Lake City and the Salty Bobbers in Steinhatchee. On May 12th we also had local callers and a cuer in the hall along with caller, Sheila Terhune, from Indiana. Then on May 26th they held a Memorial Dance where some of the dancers got together to earn a Mummy Dangle by wrapping the caller in toilet paper and festive red and blue streamers. The Salty Bobbers also held a banner raid and took the club banner back home with them.

Our Silver Fox Squares in Starke have been DARK and will continue to be DARK until further notice.

We are looking forward to starting new classes in the Fall and would like anyone who may be interested in classes to contact us.

You can dance to Ken and Shane at the Mandarin Marauders in Jacksonville. Please join us on Mondays from 7:00-9:00 pm at:

Mandarin Senior Center
3848 Hartley Road
Jacksonville, Fl 32256

The Mandarin Marauders will be raided on Monday June 4th by the Upsilon Sigma Delta who are a brand new chapter of the Rollaways square dance club formed by the youth dancers.

We would like to remind everyone that there are many local dances and events that you can attend and/or participate in.  We often have flyers at our dances and posted on our website.

If you are going on vacation you can look up clubs in the area on Wheresthedance.com or even Facebook to locate a local club. Continue reading Silver Fox Squares: June 2018 Update

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.

Our next special club dance will be our Friday the 13th Dangle Dance on October 13, 17 with a Special Guest Caller!

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.

Silver Fox Squares: August 2017 Update

What a great month for the Silver Fox Squares!

On July 1st  some of our club members attended the Independence Day celebration in Ocala. It was a very fun event and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely.

July 8th was the annual Christmas in July Dance, in Williston, to benefit the Shriner’s Children’s Hospital in Tampa, FL. There was a lot of great dancing and many great callers were there as well as a Chinese Auction, Cake Walk, and 50/50.

The benefit dance was a huge success and raised $3,663.55 to donate. If you didn’t attend this year you should make plans to attend next year! Continue reading Silver Fox Squares: August 2017 Update

Silver Fox Squares: July 2017 Update

June was another busy and exciting month for the Silver Fox Squares.

On June 2nd we had a special surprise when Tony & Sheila Cridge attended our dance. They are the clubs Vice-Presidents and have been unable to attend for a while due to health problems. It was so nice to see them back and we hope to see a lot more of them in the upcoming  months!

Then on June 9th the Silver Fox Squares hosted a Chili Dog Dangle Dance which was a big success! We had visitors from several clubs and we enjoyed dancing to our callers Ken  ‘Silver Fox’ Perez and Shane ‘Little Bear’ Perez as well as  visiting caller, Bill Chestnut. Then on July 16th we had a surprise mystery guest caller, Ronnie Langley from Calhoun, GA!

Mysterious things and people seem to appear without notice at our dances and we are pleasantly surprised every time. Continue reading Silver Fox Squares: July 2017 Update

Silver Fox Squares: June 2017 Update

Wow! What a busy month for us! The Silver Fox Squares would like to thank everyone who attended our most recent dance, the Sombrero/Crazy Hat Dangle Dance. Our callers were Ken ‘Silver Fox’ Perez and Shane ‘Little Bear’ Perez. We were thrilled to see so many people come with so many different hats.
Many of the dancers also ordered dangles which have arrived and can be picked up on a club night. We dance every Friday night at the Bradford County Senior Center in Starke.
If you didn’t get to make it for this past dance please be sure to mark your calendars for June 9th for our upcoming Chili Dog Dangle Dance and July 21st for our Red, White, & Blue Dance.
We have also enjoyed dancing with many different visitors from other clubs throughout the month. On May 25th several dancers from the Silver Fox Squares went to the Moose Promenaders to retrieve our banner that was taken in April. This was the first banner retrieval done by many of our club members and we all had a great time!
We hosted a Mainstream Workshop on May 27th for our class. A big ‘Thank you’ to the visitors from other clubs who attended to brush up on calls and help our new dancers. Our dancers also provided lots of great food and refreshments for us to enjoy during our busy day.
We would like to invite everyone to check us out and like our page on Facebook to stay informed of upcoming events and activities at our club. We also post a lot of pictures and videos from the different classes, dances, and events that we participate in. We also have a web page, http://www.silverfoxsquares.wordpress.com, that you can follow for updates.
