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 and the e-Edition, but they will be published in their entireity on this page, along with the month of submission, the Club Name, and the name of the Reporter. 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''. Some months, there may not be a report submitted...either because the club is not dancing at this time, or there was ''no news''.

Our 50's dance was held in late September...I'll have more information on that in a future report. Also, I'll have information in a future report on the ASSDF Fall Festival, which will be in Clinton, Arkansas, during Columbus Day Weekend. Future reports will include info on our Halloween Dance, our Veterans Dance, as well as our Christmas and New Year’s Dances. Check the ASSDF Website Special Dances page for the latest updates.
It may be time for The Great Pumpkin, but there are plenty of yellowrocks to harvest at every dance. Come join us the 2nd, 4th, and 5th Saturday (unless otherwise noted) at the Mabelvale
Legion Hut at Mann Road and Leah Lane. Plus Workshop starts at 7pm, with dancing starting at 7:30pm...then we go eat and fellowship afterwards.
After a nice summer off we started up with a bang. The Arkansas State Federation reps, Ted and Tonya Hofmeister, joined us for our first dance, and as a special bonus, brought Joey Duhamel with them, who ended up calling some tips! What a treat for all of us. Ted and Tonya are a lot of fun and talked about the Fall Federation Dance in Clinton, which we should all go to, and Joey is a fun caller so check him out!
Last week, we started lessons and it looks like we have a good class. A mom with her kids and some dancers who used to dance in the past, so everyone
is catching on great. Can't wait till they are flying on the floor! Lessons can be joined until October 3 so come on if your nearby. Looking forward to a great season so join us sometime.
Off to a caller's class so maybe I'll learn something new!
We dance the third Saturday of each month 7:00 to 9:00 at the Saline County Fairground. It's Exit 116 in Benton and it's on the service road next to Interstate 30. You can even see the building from the highway. I went to many Saline County Master Gardner Plant Sales there! We will be dancing October 19th & November 16th.
My huge announcement is Phil Moorehouse has agreed
to be the Santa and I will be his Elf at the Bluebird Squares' Christmas dance December 21st. I'm so happy to keep that tradition going! Tommy Ward has made a Tres Leches cake, Peach Cobbler
with ice cream, key lime and chocolate pies. All desserts have been absolutely wonderful! You never know what Tommy will come up with! Thanks to all the people that brought snacks! The snack
table is always overflowing with good stuff! Our September 21st barbeque went so well! So many smiling faces and happy contented full people! Ya'll come on over for a no-stress fun dance!
We are planning on having lessons this Fall. Please join our Facebook page to find out more about things going on with us. Hope to see you at the Fall Festival!
There is another family. The family of local square dancers. I am very thankful to have gotten to know so many of you. The welcoming nature, caring, and camaraderie of this community of square dancers is like having a second family. We hope to see you all at some very special dances this holiday season. On November 6th, we are very lucky to get a second visit this year from Butch Danielski. If you have never danced to Butch, I highly recommend you visit us. He is a wonderfully smooth caller. This is a newly added, “special situation,” dance, and is in addition to our “regular” special dance in November. On November 13th, “Cherokee” Bill Cochran returns for our “regular” special dance. Bill is a favorite local caller, and really keeps things lively. Phyllis is usually on hand for a few line dances, as well. The theme this year is Zoo/Animals/Lion King. Loincloths, grass skirts, and coconuts are optional. :) There will be no dance on November 27th, due to Thanksgiving. December 11th is our “Winter Wonderland” themed special dance, and we are super excited to welcome Joey Duhamel to Mountain Home. I have not danced to Joey yet, and have been looking forward to this dance all year. Many have told me that he is a great caller, and worth traveling for. He has many fans, and they follow him, so this promises to be a really well attended dance. I hope you can make it, too.
There will be no dance on December 25th, due to Christmas. There will be no dance on January 1st, due to New Years. Due to the unpredictable nature of the weather during winter months, we do not schedule special dances for January or February. We will be back with the special dances, on the second Wednesday of the month, in March. We will continue our regular dances, weather permitting, throughout January and February. As always, you are all invited to attend any of our regular, or special, dances.
The Twirling Funtimers Square and Round Dance Club now has its very own Facebook page. Please check it out!!! The URL is: www.facebook.com/twirlingfuntimers.
We wish you, and yours, the very best holiday season, and will look forward to seeing you back in our square next year! Merry Christmas, and a very Happy New Year.

I know it's a long way to come visit, but if the Weather permits, we would love to see you in a square.
We are planning our Mardi Gras Dance for February and look forward to having a large crowd like we did last year. Plans now are to have it on February 22nd, 2020, so we don’t step on any toes for a Valentine Dance the Saturday before.
Would love to have visitors on 2nd and 4th Tuesday nights.
