Retro Fair Haven Brownie Dosey Doe

With St. Patrick’s Day’s arrival, thoughts of those of Irish heritage turn to all things green, the luck of a four-leaf clover, fun and a dance or three — like the jig, clogging or river dancing.

Well, back in 1968, the girls of Fair Haven Brownie Troop #6 did a little dancing of their own, but it was none of the above.

The girls did some square dancing on the stage of the Knollwood School auditorium. The song the dancing was done to was Bow Belinda — “Bow, bow, bow, Belinda … Bow, bow, bow, Belinda … Bow, bow, bow, Belinda, won’t you be my partner?” OK. It was so bad, it was cute. And check out those knee socks.

So, the Retro Pic of the Day takes us back to that little dance, some familiar faces and awkward moments in dance. Though, the girls swirling around are keeping step rather well.

Recognize these, at the time, future RFH girls?
