What a wonderful weekend at Casey Jones RV Park for the Blue-Grey Festival.  We had over 20 rigs camping with us.  We had about 8 squares on the floor at Teen Town Center with many more sitting out to socialize.  We had a great crowd from Jacksonville come over for the weekend.  Bill Chesnut was wonderful and Susan Snider did an excellent job cueing the rounds for the night.  The entire floor was covered with round dancers.  She even called Mission Bell Waltz, bet she wished she hadn’t!!!
Saturday we rounded up about 5 squares for the dance in downtown Lake City.  What fun we had dancing to the cheering crowd.  I believe Dixie Dancers may have some new people to start their next lessons.  Bill did his usual best for everyone & kept us moving for about ½ hour.  We shopped the stores, the venders and had lunch.  They said the Chicken and Rice along with the Apple Dumpling hit the spot.  I stuck with the old fashioned Corn Dog.
The dance on Saturday night was held at the Toyota Dealership with Jack Lewis, Caller and Ann Hadsall & Ralph Beekman Cueing.  We had all the dignitaries, along with the Mayor of Lake City for the Grand March.  We had at least 12 + squares to start the dance.  Dixie Dancers & Vagabonds did a wonderful job with the Silent Auction.    They also had a lot of donated clothing from Jeff Kleyla of Putnam Promenaders.  The food they provided was delicious along with two tables of just desserts.  You could not go away hungry..
Sunday morning breakfast was an Egg and Hash Brown Casseroles, Fresh Fruit, Pancakes & Sausage at Casey Jones.  Volunteers were Laura & Dennis Ramsey, Don & Sherry MacGregor,  Bill & Mary Chesnut & Paul & Marilyn Scott.  Yes I really did show up   & help.  But there were a few faces not seen by me, where were you!!!!


We missed our campers who could not attend the Blue-Grey Festival, but hope to see you at Oklawaha in March.  Gail & Gary LaRue have lots of fun planned for the campout.  The agenda is attached.  Bring your Kites for a fun filled Saturday.
