East Hill Farms, in Troy, New Hampshire, was the venue for a weekend of advanced level square dancing for dancers from several New England states and three Canadian provinces. Friday, April 6, through Sunday, April 8, saw 10 squares of dancers enjoy the calling of Don Moger, of Montreal, Canada, and Ted Lizotte, of Manchester, New Hampshire.
Dancers from our area who were present were Bob Brown and Cindy Fairfield, of Newport, Larry and Kathleen Hillman, of Fairfield, Fred and Nanci Temple, of Richmond, and Bruce and Margaret Carter, of Ellsworth. It was a great weekend of high level dancing and camaraderie of friends we don’t get to see that often.
Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa, in Stowe, Vermont, was the setting of this year’s 60th New England Square Dance Convention. It all happened on the weekend of April 26 – 28. If you are a square dancer in the New England area, it’s the absolute place to be on the fourth weekend in April. The weather to and from and while we were there was beautiful, the resort was perfect, all the dancing was under one roof and the meals were super. The convention brought dancers from 10 states and 4 provinces of Canada totaling just over 600 for the three days.
Anyone interested in learning to square dance, call or contact Bob Brown at 447-0094 or Cindy Fairfield at 631-8816.
