In Memoriam - Overview
This page was last updated Dec. 4, 2013.
Over the years, many of those that were involved in square dancing, round dancing, etc. have gone on to
The Eternal Square...both in Arkansas, and around the world. These
individuals who have gone on before us...whether callers, cuers (or their spouses), or dancers...helped to make the
hobby what it is today. While they may be gone from our dance floors, they are certainly not forgotten.
Please contact me via this link, following the instructions there, to send
me an , with the names of these individuals, and whether they were a caller, cuer, spouse of a
caller or cuer, a dancer, a club, or even callers/cuers who are still alive, but have ''retired''...as well as any needed
corrections to the information on this page.
I've also added the names of square dance clubs that have long since disbanded. All I need is the club name, and the city where they danced. The club
listings are in no particular order.
And, I've added the names of callers and cuers of long ago, who to my knowledge, are still alive, but have ''retired'' from calling/cueing.
Even though I've been involved in square dancing in one way or another for over 25 years, I have forgotten the names of many
dancers, and clubs in the past.
Your help in preserving and remembering the legacy of the dancers and clubs before us would be greatly appreciated.
If there are any errors on this page, or the website, please contact me,
with the details, so the errors can be fixed.
