A Celebration / Thank You Dance

The Single Promenaders held their first dance on June 14,1979 at Yellow Rock Barn with their founders being Ernie Staggs and Ann Pemberton. At the second dance on June 28th the Club had more than the required 32 members to become federated, and the Club was officially federated in January 1980 with the help of the sponsors,

One By One's, Jacks and Queens, and Mono-Railers.

The Club later moved to the Optimist Hall in Raytown, the Plumbers and Pipefitters Union Hall in May 1983, the Turners Hall in August 1990, then returning to Yellow Rock Barn in July 2000, finally moving to Ivanhoe Church in 2006 where we still dance.

In the mid 80's the Single Promenaders boasted of being the largest single square dance club, having over 400 members. At that time we had six single square dance clubs, in the metro area, and you could dance every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, if you wanted to.

But times they are a-changing. After 13,312 days (36 years 5 months and 10 days) I'm sorry to say that it is time to say goodbye to our wonderful club. We invite everyone to come to our "LET'S GIVE THANKS" DANCE on November 27th and celebrate how thankful we are for all the wonderful dances over the years.

We SPECIALLY invite past SINGLE PROMENADERS, dancers, callers and cuers to help us say thanks. If you know any who don't dance anymore please invite them.

We will open at 6:00 PM and have lots of photos to share.

See you in a square - Norma Popp
