MARBLE FALLS — The square dance is the official dance of 22 states and the glue that bonds the “Locals Love Us” Best Club/Organization.“The applause was overwhelming,” said Gene Broadway, co-president of the Country Cuzzins Square Dance Club. “We were very, very excited to receive the award.”

Broadway and wife, Charlotte, said some members were stunned when the couple unveiled the news to them during its weekly dance.

“I think we were all shocked,” he said.

The club has been do-si-do-ing for 35 years and meets each Thursday night at First United Methodist Church in Marble Falls. About 50 members are part of the club, and a dozen are taking beginner lessons.

Broadway said the fellowship between club members makes
the group one of the best in the area.

“We get to be around the people, have a little bit of exercise from it and, basically, just visit and have a blast,” Broadway said.

Dress is casual and newcomers are welcome. The club meets for dances 7-9 p.m. Thursdays at the church, 1101 Bluebonnet Drive.
