Tuckahoe Update 5-8-2018

Tuckahoe Square Dancers,

WOW!! What fun we had again dancing to George Springer cueing and Ken Jordan calling!! George cued to good dance songs for the round dancers. Again we had up to 5 squares on the dance floor dancing to good music with some Spanish/Mexican songs to go along with our theme, Cinco de Mayo!!  With it also being baseball season, Ken even called a couple of “out to the ball game” songs. It’s always fun when we have both the round dancers and square dancers for the evening. Ned and Fricka provided the “Cinco de Mayo” Mexican style refreshments, dips and snacks. I heard Ned prepared most of the yummy foods and they were very tasty!!!  They also provided the Cinco de Mayo decorations which added to the festive night.  Thanks to Ken, George, Ned and Fricka for a fun round and square dance evening.

Next week we have Matt Worley from VA Beach calling for us. We look forward to seeing Matt again.
