Hee Haw Squares

Harold and Dorothy Price formed the Hee Haw Squares in 1971, and Harold was the clubs only caller. The club began dancing at the Parlimont Oaks Club House, Kansas City Missouri for the remainder of the 1971 dance season. From 1971 until 1975, they danced at the Leeds School in Kansas City. They moved to the Little Blue Barn in 1975 and remained there until the club folded in 1986.

Harold was responsible for the teaching of several large beginners classes

He never turned down any request to help in calling for "Festivals" and "Special Dances." He called several "Parking Lot Dances" at the Truman Corners Shopping Center in Grandview, Missouri, during the summer months. The Hee Haw Squares provided an exhibition for the Jackson County Child Care Center at the Minute Circle Friendly House in 1972, which was attended by approximately 150 non-dancing couples. This involvement in promoting square dancing gave him many opportunities to interact with many interested people from the exhibitions.

His daughter, Kim Price, was a very talented singer who provided entertainment for the Heart of America Federation Dance Festival in the 70's.

The Hee Haw Squares were always a delightful club to visit, and provided many fun dances for square dancers.

Most long timers will remember both Harold and Dorothy Price as very special people and dedicated people who loved square dancing. Harold Price passed away at the age of 90 on January 20, 2010 at the John Knox Village Care Center from complications of cancer.
