Square Dancing...Preserving a TMI Tradition

History Lessons from Former Callers

by Heidi Barker
December 2005

Editor's Note: During a 2005 Square Dance, discussion among campers turned to the days of the "Ern" aka Ernie Sackett, who spent many a days refining the tradition of square dancing at TMI and also worked hard to carry on the tradition through the music! Long-time TMI'er and musical extraordinaire Bill Davis volunteered to preserve Ernie's tapes through a more advanced technology, which is currently being completed. As a result of this process, Ernie got in touch with Ted Barker, who also played a role in the TMI square dancing history to fill in some of the early days.

The following is a recount from two former callers! Possibly there are other stories to share...what can you remember from your Square Dancing nights at TMI?

Volunteer Work Week A Success!

A brief but heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped make Fall Work Week 2005 the success it was. We accomplished everything we set out to do plus a few items, the AMC staff went away smiling, and we logged nearly 300 hours of volunteer labor. AND we found time to "kick back."

This year's croo included caretakers Art and Joan Gulovsen and Chuck "I'm wearing my mosquito tee-shirt so this must be Thursday" McFarland, helping to support the volunteer work crew of John Drum, Rick Dumont, Michael Glen, Ned McFarland, Ned's friend Lisa, Tom Merrow, Fred Nichols (croo '56–'58), Russ Peck, Peter Schneider, Bob Tanguay, and Yours Truly. Our work output is all the more commendable in light of the fact that we had four no-shows, and four folks only joining us for part of the week.
