NO DANCE Wednesday April 23, 2014 due to a church function.






Have you updated your calendar? In April I see the Convention at the Omni Mount Washington Resort in New Hampshire. In May I see the SEMCA King and Queen Dance. In June I see our final dance of the season. Is it really time to advertise the final dance of the season? No, but I do want you to have it on your calendar.


Class graduation will be Wednesday April 30, 2014. Stop by at 8:00 p.m. and welcome the new dancers into the club.


June 7, 2014 the Great Plain Squares is wrapping up its season with a dance at the Unitarian Church in Needham. Because of renovations planned at our current hall we are moving the dance from the Carter Church to the Unitarian Church. You already know this location from our summer dances. Come and visit us many times before the End of Season Dance but do remember the final dance of the season. Click here for a flier.


Now that I have told you about the End of Season Dance I might as well tell you about our Summer Dance. This will on August 2, 2014. We will have the team of Steve Park and Harriett Clarke. The dance will be at the Unitarian Church in Needham. You already know this location from our End of Season dance and from previous Summer dances. Join us for a cool night of dancing in an air conditioned hall with a great wood floor. Click here for a flier. 




April 30, 2014 is our next Wednesday night for dancing. We will have a class and club night of square dancing. Join us at 7:00 p.m. Cost is $7 per person.

Everyone loves an award. The past president of Great Plain Squares received an award in 2010. It was the "Local Legend Award" This is an award given to prominent dancers that add so much to our activity. Between his active role in square dancing and his promotion of square dancing, He is a perfect candidate and he is very honored to receive this award.
