Florida Federation of Square Dancers
President's Message

What a great Florida State Square and Round Dance Convention. The FIRM, Cheryl Miller, Terri Little, Sheila Reid, Jenny Green and Shannon Reid did an amazing job. If you did not have fun on February 21st and 22nd then  you  weren’t at the State Convention. We had door greeters as young as 9 yrs old. And these door greeters are Square Dancer’s with the Epsilon Of Northeast  Florida. This is where the future of Square Dancing is. With our youth. I honestly don’t know how many youth we have dancing in the state of Florida, but we have a nice little group in Northeast.  And again, this year Judy Anderson did a wonderful job with our dangle dancers. How much more fun could you have with all those crazy things she had us doing? Fun, fun, fun!  There’s no way I can give a shout out to all that contributed to this great time so I won’t even try. But thank you every last one that had something to do with making our wonderful hobby so much fun. How many times can one person say fun in a paragraph.? But that’s what it was….. pure fun.
