Armand Genest


 Armand was instrumental in establishing a square dance club for unattached individuals in the Greater Vancouver area after relocating from Calgary where he had been a member of the Swinging Singles of Calgary.  He and Frank Navritil got together with a few other friends to organise a steering committee in the Autumn of 1968.  After many committee meetings, the organisers were finally able to rent the gymnasium of Nootka School for January 22, 1969.  That very day resulted in a very stormy and snowy day.  The leaders had misgivings about going forward with opening night.  Much to their surprise, 100 brave souls arrived on the door step of the school gymnasium.
