The Williams Lake Square Dancers seldom let winter get them down. They just put on their snowshoes and dance.
On Sunday, February 24, 2013 approximately 30 members of the Stampede Whirlaways Square Dance Club gathered at the home of Mike and Marie Gibbons in Springhouse for an afternoon of camaraderie and square dance fun.
After bundling up and donning snowshoes, the square dancers did the Snow Shoe Shuffle as club caller, Nick Turner, challenged them with his calls. There was a lot of laughter as the dancers maneuvered their way over the snow and more than a bit of dismay when Turner asked them to swing! No one ended up in a snow bank, however and all had a lot of good fun and healthy exercise.
Following the snow shoe adventure, the rosy-cheeked dancers were happy to come into the warmth of the Gibbon’s home and share a potluck supper. As is usual at a square dance event, the food choices were splendid and the dancers enjoyed eating and visiting.
The Gibbons made everyone feel very welcome and Mike Gibbons had even cleaned and heated his garage, so after supper the dancing continued. This time everyone was more spritely, having traded their snowshoes for regular shoes.
The club members were pleased to have some of this season’s newer dancers join in the fun and to experience the socialization that square dancers enjoy.
The Williams Lake square dancers dance on a weekly basis from September to April.
