HAPPY SQUARE DANCING DAY!
Here’s a chance to get out and “Dosey Do” with your partner. It’s Square Dance Day!
English, Irish, and Scottish settlers brought square dancing to the U.S. As it evolved in the U.S., a caller was added to help dancers stay in step. It remains popular among southern and western rural areas, and with senior citizens.
Have you heard of this famous Irish-American? Audie Murphy was the most decorated soldier of WWII with 28 citations for bravery, including the Medal of Honor. Murphy also became a celebrated Hollywood actor after the war for over two decades, appearing in 44 films, mostly westerns. He also had some success as a country music composer.
