It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of George Czank on Dec. 2, 2017 at VGH. He was a founding member of the Swinging Singles Square Dance Club and an Honourary Life Member for many years. George and his twin Frank received their 50 year pins and 60 year certificates of dancing in February 2013.
Until recently, George rarely missed any of our dance nights, he and Frank were always in the parking lot waiting for the first members to arrive as they had the keys to open the hall. After entering the hall, their next task was to make the tea and coffee, this was done with precise organization and preferably without the interference of anyone attempting to be of assistance. Next, they waited at the door for the arrival of our caller, so they could help carry in the caller’s equipment. George, always the gentleman, willingly danced with any lady needing a partner. George and Frank were always the last to leave the hall as they again assisted the caller carrying equipment back out to the car.
George thank you for your many years of unending help and support at Swinging Singles, you will always be remembered.
George also danced weekly at Century House and attended many other special event square dances including attending the Penticton Square Dance Peach Festival in his younger years.
Information re George’s Funeral Service will be posted when it is available.
