Thank-you callers, cuers and dancers for being part of our celebration

On October 25th, 2014, Heather and Doug Holmes hosted a dance to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. Mr. Jim Lee was the MC for the evening program which included guest callers Rick Gerris of Lindsay, Grant Logan of Thornhill and Bryan Henry of Guelph. Round dance cuers were Bob Beck of Thorold and Kim Hamilton of Oxford Mills. About 125 dancers were in attendance for the evening.
Doug and Heather were supported by several members of the Happy Hoppers club of Newmarket. They were there to ensure that refreshments were available for the evening dance, and most were also in attendance during the afternoon community "Open House". We extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to those club members who are always on deck to offer their assistance, including many other occasions during the year.
We welcomed dancers from many of the NSDCA ( campers ) dance clubs, as well as a large number from our local T & D clubs. In addition, we received dancers from North Bay, Orillia, Collingwood, Owen Sound, Minesing, Lindsay, Peterborough, Oshawa, Belleville, Kingston, Mallorytown, Oxford Mills and Chateauguay, Quebec.
Family members and other special guests ( non-dancers ) who were on hand for the events of the afternoon, remained for quite a while during the evening, just to see the fun involved with square dancing.
A big thank-you to all the dancers who came to offer us their best wishes and to spend an evening dancing with us, and a special thank-you to Jim Lee for organizing and leading a most enjoyable evening of music and dance.
