SUMMER NEWSLETTER 2000
MSD NEWS ITEMS!
What a wonderful time the dancers had at the June dance with Tim Crawford. We all had a great
time and those that missed it should be sure to catch him next time.
Also On July 9th the 5rd Annual Dinner Dance was held with Floridian, Red Bates calling. The
chicken barbeque preceded the dance at 5:30. Many MSD members as well as guests attended this
special. Lots of new dacners. It was great to see them.
On August 13th we will have our Hot Dog Roast Dance! Mickey McFarland will be calling.
PLEASE NOTE! For this dance I am asking MSD 'ers to help run the dance. Gerry and I will be
in Denver Colorado over the last several weeks of AUGUST. We are having a vacation for
several weeks visiting relatives and doing some other fun things.
Encourage all New Dancers and members of other clubs to attend our summer dances. These dances are specifically provided for their enjoyment; encourage dancers to continue to dance in the summertime.
Tri-Mountain Graduates Five
The Tri-Mountain square dance club graduated May 26th the following new dancers:
Doris & Gary Pezze
Judy & Douglas Westfall
Wonderful Busy Summer!
What a great summer it has been. Gerry and I called at two summer square dance camping weekends. One was over the July 4th weekend in Plattsburg at the Fair grounds. Bob Labounty called with us and Walt Wall and Mo Wall did the rounds. Dancing was in the North Country Squares dance hall right on the fair grounds.
The other weekend was at Boonville and it rained much of the time. Tik & Louise Goei attended from this area. Mo Wall was the cuer. It was a great hall to call and dance in and we hope to return there next year.
The Tri-Mountain and Catskill Squares/College Grads picnics came off with good weather in each case. Some fall prospects for dancing attended each picnic but we need to do much more recruiting if we want the classes to be successful.

Start thinking about fall classes for your local club. Try inviting prospective new dancers to the

An Unwanted Kiss
An honest seven-year-old told her parents that Billy Brown had kissed her after class.
"How did that happen?" gasped her mother.
"It wasn't easy," admitted the young lady, "but three girls helped me catch him."
