Janice came to the U of I in 1963, I arrived in '64, we were married in '65, and we moved out of the state in 1969, after the birth of our daughter. During those five years of our life together, folk dancing was a very important part. Not only did we dance every Thursday with our main group, we sometimes went to Scottish Country Dancing on Tuesdays, and we also had special workshops on occasions when special instructors were available. Once in a while on weekends we had potluck dinners, weekend retreats, and some special performances in local schools or churches. Of course, on these occasions, we usually had parties following the events. It was a very active group. We had a wonderful time with the activities and the people involved. The pictures below bring back many great memories!
