Club Help


The above statement is one of many definitions of what our activity (SQUARE DANCING) is supposed to be. One of the facets of “friendliness” is the social aspect and that of taking the opportunity to visit, dance with and help to support other clubs and their members.

On occasion, we find the need to request special assistance, or what we commonly refer to as a “helping hand,” when a club finds itself in a difficult situation.

While not an official request for a “helping hand,” I was contacted by one of our area clubs that have found themselves in need of support, the Rusty Hinge Square Dance Club. They dance at the VFW Hall, 136 Chambers Street in El Cajon on Saturday mornings from 10 a.m. to noon. They are a very, very small and senior group of dancers who still enjoy square dancing as much as they can, when they can get a square together.

I have had the pleasure of calling for them and can attest to the fact that they epitomize the friendliness and sociability of our activity.

If you can find the time to spare a couple of hours on a Saturday morning, they would love to have you visit their club, dance with them, and help to support them.
