We Can’t Get Enough Of Tom Davis!!

We all had the privilege this afternoon, Sunday, April 22, 2018, to attend the 40th Calling Anniversary Party for Tom Davis at the Michael Solomon Pavilion. This jubilee was lovingly put on by Tom’s wife, Bernice, family, friends and sponsored by Kitty Hawks Squares. From one end of the Pavilion to the other, there was an endless sea of dancers, callers, friends and family, who came from all directions, to share their congratulations and appreciation for Tom Davis’ gift of beautiful calling for 40 solid years. Tom was joined by the masters – Nick Hartley, Darrin Henry, Jason Raleigh, Travis Cook, Kristy Williams, Teresa Burger, Amanda Skidmore, Mark Patterson, Gary Hutton, Nathaniel Arnett and Wesley Fenner who all shared Tom Davis antecdotes, memories and laughs. The squares were a constant rush of pure adrenaline and foot stomping bliss. The round dancers were twirling, waltzing and light of foot being cued by Elaine Wintrow. No one left hungry with the beautiful cake, cupcakes and the stock piled food line. Tom summed up the afternoon, “Square dancing is more than squaring, it is a community, a family that sticks around no matter what. We are all so truly blessed.” We can’t get enough of Tom Davis!! Here is looking forward to another 40 + years of his great gift of calling!!

  1. Wow, you captured the day just perfectly….thank you, Colleen! My favorite part was getting to dance with folks from places all over… more new folks, interesting, loving people, with their own varied, colorful stories and dancing styles! The bond was amazing! It was a fantastic slice of American Square Dance Pie! If you are reading this…would you drop a line here? It would be a cyberspace Yellow Rock! Suzanne
