The square dancing community is tight-knit. We feel the loss of any member just as we would someone in our family. Here, we honor those who have danced with us and still dance in our hearts.

Charlotte was the wife of Frontier Squares' first caller (Johnny). You can read Charlotte's account of "How Did Frontier Squares Get Started" in our History Booklet. From what we've been told, Johnny was a dynamic, talented teacher and caller that attracted many dancers to our activity.
Thanks to Johnny & Charlotte, and the five squares of people who were in the first class that started in 1971, they gave birth to our wonderful club that we love as Frontier Squares. Johnny called for Frontier from August, 1972 to January, 1985 when he died suddenly. At the time of his death the membership of Frontier was at its all-time highest, 276 members.
We regret we never had the pleasure of meeting Charlotte (we had invited her multiple times to attend honor dances or anniversary dances). If you believe the phrase, "Behind every successful man is a woman," plus her welcoming smile (shown in the picture below), we say “THANK YOU” for her dedication and efforts that helped make Frontier Squares what it is today.
