Hoedowners Square Dancers

The Wood River Square Dance Club was started in 1949 by Mayor Lucien Ringering at the Round House.  The club is the oldest square dance club in existence in Illinois and has always danced in the Round House.  Square dancing provides good physical exercise as well as enjoyment for the body and mind for all ages.  Social action with other people is an added bonus.  It is enjoyment set to music.  A new class will begin in September @ 7:00 p.m. for 2 hours each Thursday.  Once you have completed lessons, you may be interested in joining the Hoedowners on the 2nd & 4th Saturdays of each month for some square dancing fun.  They meet at 7:00 p.m. in the Round House and invite other clubs and various guest callers.  The first week’s class is free.  You are encouraged to participate in the friendship as you exercise.  

Senior Adult Program 55+

Adults age 55 and over are invited to join in activities for an annual fee of $10.00. Meetings are held at 11 a.m. on the second Thursday of every month. After a brief meeting a full meal is served catered by Chef Bob.  The cost per meal is $4.00. The price Chef Bob charges is somewhat more depending on the price of food. A generous gift of $2,500.00 from the mayor and city council allows us to charge the $4.00 amount. After paying the annual fee of $10.00 each member is entitled to 4 meals without paying. Lunch is provided for the following occasions:

Mother’s Day (May)               Thanksgiving (Nov.)

Father’s Day (June)                Christmas (Dec.)


After the meal is served bingo is played with each winner awarded $2.00. The cost of the bingo is funded by a 50-50 drawing. The meal and the bingo usually ends about 1:30 pm.
