"Yellow Rock" (a friendly hug in square dance terms) is a common signal to square dancers. In 1995, our long time class instructor and caller, Lin Jarvis, donated the Yellow Rock Award to Chi-Town Squares to annually honor a club member for outstanding service. Each recipient then chooses whom to pass it along to the following year.
Chi-Town's president in 1995, Steve Miller, awarded the first Yellow Rock Award to John Pope, the year of our first national convention. In 2005, the award was renamed the Eric B. Calimag Yellow Rock Award, in the memory of Eric Calimag, who passed away shortly after receiving the award in 2004.
Congratulations to all past and current recipients for their contributions to the success of Chi-Town Squares over the years.
