In the early 1960s, two couples invited their friends to a party for the purpose of introducing them to square dancing. Richard “Blackie” Hardy introduced a few calls to the group and, by the end of the evening, 24 couples, or 6 squares, had signed up for lessons. The name of the group became “Paws and Taws Square Dance Club”, named after “Paw” signifying the male dancer of the couple and “Taw” denoting the female dancer.
