SPECIAL EVENTS


60th Anniversary Dance

Sunday, May 22, 2022 2:00-5:00 PM,
Westborough Senior Center, 4 Rogers Rd, Westborough, MA 01581
See Flyer.

The Fairs 'n Squares will be celebrating 60 years of square and round dancing fun on Sunday, May 22, in Westborough.  The club was organized in 1962, when the first group of dancers graduated from a series of classes held in the Framingham Civic League.  The club has danced in several venues since then, but it is still a Framingham-based organization. We hope many of our friends from other clubs will join in our celebration.
