We got a CDSS postcard in the mail that was found in a flea market from member Karin Gottlier in Tolland, CT — the back of the postcard says Country Dancing at Pinewoods Camp. We’ve identified a few of the dancers, but would love to hear from you on who else you can identify in this picture.
Our board president, David Millstone, says this: “We have it in our collection of postcards at the SquareDanceHistory.org website. Our identification information for that card reads, in part:
“Among the dancers are Jack and Genny Shimer, the farthest couple in the line of four on the left. Bob Dalsemer surmises, ‘They are probably dancing a double version of Cumberland Square with the basket figure. I also recognize Bob Salmons (with the glasses in the basket) and John Owen, first in the line on the right.’”
We’d really love to hear from you if you were sitting in the crowd or dancing in this photo.
P.S. Check out our gift membership that comes with the 2013 Contradance calendar or pick up a water bottle or tote bag in our Store. And have you heard about our participation on Valley Gives Day? Check it out. A great way to leverage a year-end gift to CDSS!
