Special Recognition of Marie and Daryl Bean

From time to time, the Mississippi Squares award a Certificate of Social Membership to people who have made outstanding contributions to both the club and the larger square dance community over the years.

Marie and Daryl Bean were given this honour at our 2018 Christmas dinner and dance in recognition of their enthusiastic involvement in the club on so many levels. After starting their square dance journey with Village Squares, they became members of Mississippi Squares in 2001. Marie and Daryl took on the executive position of Vice-President for the 2003 – 2004 season, and then took on the position of President for both the 2004 – 2005 and 2005 – 2006 seasons, followed by the position of Past President for 2006 – 2007. In particular, their guidance on the development of our constitution was invaluable.

Congratulations, Marie and Daryl, and many thanks for your help and friendship, both on and off the dance floor.

No Halfway Measures at the
30th Annual Halfway Dance of the Mississippi Squares!

Despite cold temperatures outside, 275 dancers from 26 clubs, including dancers from North Bay and the United States, warmed the Basic, Mainstream and Plus halls, as Brian Crawford, Paul Adams and Geoff Clarke rotated through the three beautifully decorated venues, never missing a call. And Jean Clingin rounded out the dance party with her round-dance cues for anyone who wanted to “sashay” from squares over to rounds.

January 12 turned out to be lucky for four dancers who “shared the wealth” to the tune of $80 apiece. Adding more good luck to the evening, an astounding 85 door prizes gave 85 more dancers reason to head home with smiles on their faces. We also multiplied the number of people receiving good luck by donating $475 to Interval House in Carleton Place. This donation was made possible by everyone who purchased dancing apparel at the “New to You” Boutique and everyone who purchased raffle tickets for two pieces of original artwork by Mississippi Squares members Gayle Marshall and Ann Williams, who donated their talents and many hours of creativity.

As if all of this wasn’t enough to leave a good taste in one’s mouth, guests were regaled with copious amounts of delicious food at evening’s end, helping to renew their energies for the drive home.

Kudos to the collective efforts of club members and the executive for providing an animated and smooth-running evening of fun.
