60th Wedding Anniversary
Saturday, October 14, 2017, dancers, relatives, and friends from Saskatchewan and Alberta came together in North Battleford, SK to honour Ray & Misel Rosler on the occasion of their 60th anniversary.
Over the past thirty-some years Ray & Misel have taught square and round dancing to countless people in eastern Alberta and western Saskatchewan, and have driven thousands of kilometers supporting clubs in a wide area of the prairies. Among the many certificates presented was one from the Canadian Square and Round Dance Society (shown below being presented by Kaye Hauer on behalf of CSRDS). An evening dance of square, round, and social dancing followed the afternoon program and supper. Thank you to Ray & Misel’s daughters, Noreen & Gloria, and their families for planning the day and inviting us to share it with them.
Congratulations, Ray and Misel! We all wish you many more years of happiness together and we thank you for a lifetime of service to the square and round dance community.
