    Hilda and Ken were our memtors to square dancing in1964, they were always there to open the door for us to dance and meet so many friends, We enjoyed dancing with them for two years and we were then posted to Base Borden, where I started calling. we have called in 26 country’s around the world and it all started with two wonderful friends. They will both be missed but our memories of a wonderfu couple that helped us to learn square dancing will live forever.
