Following lunch, Frankie and Gene Hammond and members of The Friendly Squares of Niles were introduced. Gene presented some of the history of square dancing and told us that it originated in the 14th or 15th century, and is the official folk dance of the United States. A demonstration of square dancing was then presented with Gene doing the calling. MRTA members (June Logan, Debbie Haverstock, Peggy Bennett and Marilyn Patterson) took a turn in the square. We all learned that square dancing is excellent exercise, and a good way to keep the mind sharp.
