Dudes & Dolls celebrate 50th Anniversary

CORBIN — The Dudes & Dolls Square Dance Club hosted a celebration to commemorate its 50th Anniversary Saturday.

For more than five decades, the Dudes & Dolls have promoted exercise, fellowship, fun and laughter through the art of square dance. When the club formed in 1963, Ed McFadden was the caller — Ed and his wife, Joy, being cornerstones of the club. Ed continued as caller for the Dudes & Dolls until his death in August 2006. Tim McFadden (Ed and Joy’s son) picked up the reins and followed in his father’s footsteps. He took over as caller for the club and he remains so today.

Over the decades, many couples have come and gone. Interest in square dancing has dropped markedly in recent years; however, there is still the faithful group of Dudes & Dolls who continue to dance each Thursday night. On the third Saturday of each month, the club hosts a special dance featuring a guest caller. The club also offers lessons for new dancers twice a year. Almost anyone can learn to square dance but it does require commitment. The benefits of square dancing are numerous. It is good for the mind, the body and offers the opportunity to meet wonderful people and make new friends.

Tom and Eva Miracle, club presidents, invited local dancers and visitors alike to participate in the 50th Celebration Dance. The dance began at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Community Room on Depot Street in Corbin. National caller Jack Pladdys was the caller for the special event.

For information, call Tom Miracle at 526-0697; 344-5279 or Betty Comer at 528-1354; 524-1354.
