25 Years of Gay Square Dancing in Washington DC

The DC Lambda Squares square dance club celebrated their 25th anniversary on Saturday, January 20 at First Baptist Church near Dupont Circle in Washington, DC. Many oldtimers attended, a large contingent from Baltimore sparkled, and two special guests from Philadelphia also danced the night away.


The evening featured a fabulous Italian dinner graciously prepared by club member (now chef) Nick Mattera, and his capable kitchen crew who fueled us up for the dance following with Warren Jaquith and Dayle Hodge calling all of our favorites.


Here are some photos of a very memorable evening:
