SUMMER MAGIC SQUARE
AND ROUND DANCE WEEKEND

Continued from Home Page.
Four local couples traveled to Cornwall, Ontario in Canada for the Annual Summer Magic Square and Round Dance weekend on Thursday, August 24th. The group enjoyed an early welcoming dance on Friday from 2:30 to 4:00 PM with 25 squares of dancers, totaling 200 individual dancers. The festival started at 6:50 PM with close to an hour of just round dancing and at 8:45 PM the square dancing began with an additional 25 more squares joining the group. Saturday’s dancing started after breakfast at 8:30 AM and except for lunch and dinner went until 11:30 PM. Sunday, after breakfast and loading cars readying for the drive home, dancing went from 8:45 to 11:30 PM, when everyone headed home.
