One of the items in the publication reports, submitted by the Reporter from the various square and round dance clubs.
The reports are limited to 250 words in the print edition (I'll try to keep editing to a minimum, but they'll be published as is, in the e-Edition, and on this page, along with the month of submission, the Club Name, and the name of the Reporter. I would PREFER the report be emailed, as I can integrate it into the issue faster.
Note that if the report misses the deadline for the print edition, and the e-Edition, it will be posted here, with a note that ''it did not make the deadline''...which states that ''Club Reports must be on the Editors Desk by the 5th of the month, preceding the month of issue''. Since the printer has to have everything by the 10th of the month, preceding the month of issue, my goal, as Editor, is to have both the print edition, and the e-Edition out as soon as possible after the deadline.
The following reports are for the June, 2020 issue of The Modern Square. The reports are noted in the order received by the Editor. These are also available here. If no report was received, obviously none will be listed.

We're still DARK until further notice, due to COVID-19. Updates will be on our Facebook page, the ASSDF websites, and the ASSDF Twitter feed when we can return to dancing. We're hoping to resume activities by August, including our Backpack and School Supplies Dance on August 8.
Remember, it's best to take care of yourself. Please stay home, or seek medical care if you're not feeling well. Eventually, we'll be back to dancing, and then catching up on all the missed yellowrocks; please call before you travel!
As noted last month, yours truly won't be dancing for a time, due to hernia surgery (once these resume), but hope I can watch, and get yellowrocks.
We miss you greatly, and wait anxiously to see you again soon, Lord willing. Keep up the good work with social distancing, masks, etc., and God bless you as we wait this out. Once we do see each other, it will be a wonderful reunion!! :-)
Virtual yellow rocks to all!!
Of course, we have no way of knowing how long this will go on. But, I know one thing, I have a heightened appreciation of our friendships within our square dance family. And, the awareness of how good the exercise and socializing are for our minds, bodies, and spirits. I know we will never underestimate the beauty of our square dancing again.
I will let you know as soon as we are dancing again at Levis And Lace. Stay safe, dear ones.
Our May dance was cancelled because of the high school rodeo. Some have said we'll probably need lessons when we go back, it's been that long!
Our summer dances are: June 20th, July 18th, and August 15th. June and July are regular dances, 7pm to 9pm. August 15th, we'll have our barbeque and dance. We'll feed our faces at 6pm, then work it off 7pm to 9pm. Phil Moorehouse and I will keep ya'll hopping! (LOL!). I'm going to ask for an RSVP, so we can get a count. I hope everyone can come eat, and dance with us!
Saline County Fairgrounds is at 406 Fairfield Road, Benton. Exit 116 on I-30. Going down the service road, you'll see an iron fence, and the opening where you turn will be so much easier to see, because it'll be daylight! We dance in the gray building, first on the right!
Lessons had to be cancelled, but I'm hoping to start them back in September. I ran into one of the couples that couldn't make it this time, but they want to when we do it again. Even their two teenage daughters loved it!
I hope you'll enjoy the pictures in the e-Edition, from the Maverick Mixers Halloween dance in 2009.
My front yard Bluebird babies have fledged, and the backyard babies will fledge in about a week. I'm having lots of hummers! I've got five feeders up. I change out the sugar water every two days. I'm not sure what happened, but the Baltimore Orioles never showed up at my house.
Ya'll come on over, and dance and laugh with us!
