Puxico Country Squares

Puxico Country Squares first square dance lessons were offered in the fall of 1981 at the Puxico VFW hall. In January of 1982 the club was organized and the name of Puxico Country Squares was chosen.

Club colors were red and navy blue.

Puxico Country Squares had 35 charter members. Only three of the charter members are still dancing today. Dale & Margaret Ann Sifford were the first presidents. The first caller and teacher were Dale & Betty Phillips of Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

The club became a member of the Missouri Federation of Square & Round Dance in June of 1982. The club still has an average of 35 members today and still dances twice a month at the Puxico VFW hall.
