Square Wheels
Chapter 128

December 2011

O’Leno Hoedown – Nov. 4, 5, 6,  2011 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.
Thanks, to all for all of your hard work.
