A Valley News Publication

For one thing, I can’t recall the last time I saw square dancers in a shopping plaza parking lot.

Rich’s department store, long gone, is now home to Kohls. And across the parking lot, HomeGoods is set to open on Sunday, Sept. 23. That building wasn’t even there yet! Of course, you can find more Upper Valley throwbacks at the #valleynewsthrowback hashtag on the @vnewsuv Instagram.

The Twin State Squares gathered at the West Lebanon Shopping Center on election night — Sept. 10, 1974 — to offer a little entertainment to shoppers and promote their “fun night” at the Hartford School Annex. For square dance enthusiasts, “Chub” Smith will be the caller. (Valley News – Larry McDonald) Copyright Valley News. May not be reprinted or used online without permission.
