Lota and Harold Erickson 
Square Dance Caller
ID: 2121

SIO's article: THERE MUST BE quite a number of enthusiasts across the country who could fill the title of Mr. and Mrs. Square Dancer but we feel that this honor certainly is suitable to the couple we are honoring this month. Harold and Lota Erickson, General Chairmen of the tenth National Square Dance Convention being held in the city of Detroit, Michigan, late in June, the spotlight is on you!

What are the qualifications for a couple who will handle such responsibility? There are so many. Certainly leadership is one factor. Leadership not just in square dancing (the Ericksons have been club presidents, association presidents and festival chairmen to just touch on the subject) but leadership outside of this activity is equally important. Harold, as a member of the Michigan Bar Association, has held the post of Friend of the Court in Detroit for many years before going into private law practice recently. In addition he is past master of his Masonic Lodge and is at present honored by being nominated a 33rd degree Mason.

Enthusiastic in many phases of the hobby, Harold and Lota have been active in Detroit square dancing since 1947. They have attended at least twelve square and round dance institute sessions and have been on hand at six of the past nine National Conventions.

The Ericksons have three grown children living in and near Detroit and are quite proud of the fact that of their eight grandchildren four are girls and four are boys — a perfect square.

And so to Harold and Lota Erickson, our cover people, goes Sets in Order's special salute as Mr. and Mrs. Square Dancer — couple of the month. You'll see them in Detroit.
