   Cripple Creek Cloggers "Wowed" Croatia!

The Cripple Creek Cloggers returned home July 24th after successful performances in Croatia.

Cripple Creek Cloggers In Their 50th Year!

The local Appalachian folk dancers celebrated their 50th anniversary on April 22 at 5:30 p.m. for dinner, reminiscing, and dancing.  Music was provided by Uncle Shuffelo and His Haint Hollow Hootenanny.  

The event was at the home of the Kittrell Volunteer Fire Department, on the old Kittrell School campus where the troupe was organized as a Share the Fun 4-H activity in 1967. Steve Cates, the 4-H Leader at that time and a teacher at the school, is still the director.
