Chapter 128

December 2010

O’Leno Hoedown – Nov. 5, 6, 7, 2010 at O’Leno State Park, High Springs, was a great success.
The weather was cold and beautiful.
We had about 15 squares dancing and many sitting out visiting.
The callers and cuers were great.
The Saturday evening dinner cooked by Jay & Terri Peck, was fabulous.
The breakfast crew did an outstanding job and the chili, burgers and dogs were great as well.
We all appreciate the fine cooking.  Everyone pitched in and helped.
Thank you Mary Chesnut, for all of your hard work.

The Square Wheels Christmas Party is Dec. 18th,
at Grace Presbyterian Church in Gainesville.
The address is 3146 N. W. 13th Street (US441).
We will plan to eat at 5 pm with party and dancing to follow.
There will be a Chinese gift exchange (limit $10) you can participate as a couple or single.
Donna & Jerry Robey have volunteered to cook the ham.
Martha has volunteered to cook the turkey.
Plates, tableware, cups, napkins, drinks & rolls will be provided,
so just bring your favorite casserole, salad, vegetable, or desert to go along with the meat.
