Description
Photograph was edited for publication purposes
Photograph article dated December 27, 1950 partially reads, "A Valley square dance group is promenading right into the beams of a national talent spotlight. They call themselves the 'Woody Woodpecker Woodchuckers.' The name fits for they are splintering dance floors from Burbank to West Valley with fancy turns and steps. America's famed cartoon producer, Walter Lantz sponsors the group." Photograph caption reads, "Swing your partner - Richard 'Doc' Tullar of Pierce College is caller for colorful 'Woody Woodpecker Woodchuckers.' Here he asks them to promenade around hall."
