Tuckahoe Update 8-7-2018

Last Friday Dave Eno, National Caller from Syracuse, New York, was our guest square dance caller. This was Dave’s first time to call for Tuckahoe Squares and he was a huge hit!! We also got to meet his wife Karen who took pictures and video. We all loved Dave’s music and great calling. Adding to the fun evening George Springer was cueing for all the round dancers. Everyone had a fun time. Heidi and Mark provided the delicious refreshments of sandwiches, potato salads, fruit, good cookies and other snacks…all so tasty!!  A big “Thank You” to Dave, Karen, George, Heidi and Mark for a fun evening.

To add to the summer activities, this Friday is our Ice Cream Social Dance. Ken Jordan will be our guest caller. We always have a great time when Ken is here calling for us and we look forward to seeing him again. The club will be providing Vanilla, Chocolate, and Peach ice cream along with some cookies and cake. I will bring chocolate syrup so if you have any ice cream toppings to share, please bring them……like nuts, bananas, cherries, other fruit, or whatever. We will be celebrating Anniversaries and Birthdays.
