HISTORY OF THE PEAR BLOSSOM SQUARE DANCE FESTIVAL

    During the year of 1965 there were four Square Dance Clubs in the Medford Oregon area.  They were The Twirlers of Medford, The Ramblin Rogues of Medford, The Southern Oregon Singles and The Star Promenades’ of Medford.  At this time they decided to form a committee to bring all Square Dancers in the area closer together. They also wanted to intertwine square dancing with the local community festivities and bring to the community the fun and comradery we experience in square dancing. Thus a committee was formed called
"The Pear Blossom Square Dance Committee" to correspond with the local festival and consisted of members from all four Clubs. 
The dance was to be held during the Second full week-end in April,
as this was the time that all of the pear orchards are in bloom.
   The first annual Square Dance was held in April 1966 and was a huge success. It has been going on ever since. As the years went by Square Dancing was starting to deminish with members and over the years three of the four clubs were forced to close down.  The Star Promenaders continued on with the help of additional clubs that were formed or already in existence in the Rogue Sis-Q Council.  Square Dance Clubs now on the committee are the Star Promenaders, Charlie Brown Squares, Circle N Square and Lantz`s Dantzer`s. This committee is open to any and all Rogue Valley Square Dancers and Square Dance Clubs that want to help bring all Square Dancers closer together and to keep the fun in Square Dancing.
