Berwick Belles'n Beaus 45th Anniversary
         The Berwick Belles'n Beaus Square Dance Club are celebrating their 45th Anniversary of square dancing on November 3rd, 2007, at 8pm. in the Berwick Town Gym.
         The Belles'n Beaus were organized in the fall of 1962. Glen Maynard was the club's first caller and in that same year, Arch Erikson showed an interest in learning to call and he became the club caller in the fall of 1963. He calledfor the club for a couple of years and then Don Haley became the club caller for many years.
         We began dancing in the Berwick high School auditorium and later moved to the Anglican Parish Hall, which was next door to the school. We danced there for fifteen years and when the school auditorium became the Berwick Town Gym, we moved back there.
         We have gone through varying degrees of membership over the years. We have celebrated several anniversariesas the years progressed and we are excited about celebrating our 45th Anniversary, which we consider a mile-stone in square dancing in our area.
         We have had six club callers Glen Maynard, Arch Erikson, Don Haley, Wilfred Burns, Barry Walker, and our present caller is Tom Collins.
         We are small in number but large in enthusiasm! We are fortunate to have Ron Low as our guest caller for the Anniversary dance and are happy to invite all square dancers to our celebration.
                  Thelma Huntley, Club Secretary
