Note from the Pres Welcome to the Grand Squares of Nelson homepage.... www. sites.google.com / site / grandsqsofnelson / home We're making a presence as an active square dance club in Nelson County, the greater Virginia Square Dance Community and maybe even the World. Well that remains to be seen. At least we can say we've got visability... but we're still uncertain about being heard.
This is a work in progress so pardon our dust for the next month or so. We'll be updating this site to provide the sense of community that the Grand Squares of Nelson deserves. We're looking to the club membership to make this website informative to club members, new students, and the general public. If you have comments or suggestions please send them to us at: GrandSquaresofNelson @ gmail.com
