The Red Rock Ramblers are a "Modern Western" square dance club located in Lyons. All of their dances take place every Saturday night at the Lyons Elementary School gym beginning in June, and continuing through Labor Day. Participants must
know how to do Modern Western square dancing. But anyone in the community is welcome to attend as an audience member and enjoy the music and camaraderie.
This season, their 60th, the opening dance on Saturday, June 16 will feature Mike Hogan of Omaha, Nebraska, calling and cuing. Rounds begin at 7 p.m., and squares run from 7:30 to10 p.m. Rick and Rose Renz who are celebrating their 50th anniversary have generously picked up the tab for evening, so this is a free event for everyone else!
We will be celebrating with a 60th anniversary cake on September 1. Mr. LaVerne & Mrs. LaVern Johnson started the square dances in Lyons in 1958 because they loved to square dance, but could not find a regular summer dance on the Front Range of Colorado.
Come and congratulate Mrs. LaVern Johnson and wish her a happy 91st birthday July 21. Mark your calendars now!
There will also be a special dance at Lyons Good Old Days, on the evening of June 30.
On Sunday, September 2 – there will be an extra dance, the "Wing-Ding. "Rounds will be at 2 p.m., and squares from 2:30 to 5 p.m., featuring Lanny Weaklend and Dave Smith.
