"Trans-Border Clubs provide Trans-Pacific Experience"
Although the Tantramar Twirlers of Sackville NB, and the Cumberland Twirlers of Amherst NS, are separated bya provincial border they are actually nearest neighbor square dancing clubs and not infrequently get together. One such event took place on November 6, when the clubs jointly provided a square dancing experience for more than fifty Japanese students enrolled at Mount Allison University in the MASSIE program. This program (MOUNT ALLISON SOPHOMORE SEMESTER IN ENGLISH) now in its seventh year, brings thesestudents here for about three months, during which time they are introduced to "aspects of life in the Tantramar region"and naturally this includes square dancing. The consensus among our dancers was that the students were quick learners and soon overcame language limitations, as demonstrated by their enthusiasm and smiling faces. -- Douglas H. Grant.
