Clay Allemanders … Got a new Home!
On May 22, The Clay Allemanders held their first home dance in their new hall with a great new caller, Shane Perez, and his father, Ken, as co-caller. This new hall has better acoustics and a larger dance floor.
On our first night in the new hall we elected our Presidents, Bill & Paula Dion, and Vice Presidents, Asoa Whiting & Irene Strickland. We also had a surprise visit from caller, Ernie Rollen, who helped call a tip with Shane and Ken.
Thanks to Asoa Whiting, long time dancer and Clay member, who reached out to his own church, and Voila! He made arrangements for the Clay Allemanders to continue their weekly Monday home dances. We will continue to dance on Monday evenings throughout the summer!
Many of you may remember a very nice 5th Saturday Dance at this same hall a year ago. Along with floor space for as many as 10 -12 squares come really nice round tables and soft cushioned chairs. The hall has a real nice stage along with an ice machine and limited use of the kitchen.
Says Bill Dion, President of Clay Allemanders, “We are well on our way”! We now need to grow our club as we are the only open Square Dancing Club in Clay County! As we continue working with our callers, Shane and Ken, we are putting together some recruiting events in the community to not only grow our club but promote Square Dancing in general.
Expect a couple major events from the Allemanders! Come and dance, have great fun, and check out our hall! Remember to bring your passports when you come to visit!
First event will be a Flag Day Dangle Dance on Monday June 19th to help celebrate Flag Day and our great Nation’s Flag. Start up time will be 8 PM. Those visitors coming will be able to order a “one time only” unique dangle!
The second event, our Patriotic Dance, is set for Monday July 3rd, at 8 PM… we will celebrate the upcoming 4th with a feast on good old American food… Tube Steaks!!! Stay tuned for news on future Clay Allemanders events and be sure to like and follow our Facebook page for updates.
