Dancing Shoes- Sherri Iona — Judy Wing

Dancing Shoes- Sherri Iona — Judy Wing

These are photos from various dances when I, Sherri, and Judy Wing were little. As far as I remember Dayna Featherstone did all the costumes but My Mom’s friend Edna White (Dave White’s mom) may have made the odd one. I remember going to her house at Innisville. The piano player for most of our music was Gert MacTavish. She was grandmother to Ron MacTavish, Ottawa Valley Moving. –Sheri Iona ( all photos Sheri Iona)

Note spelling of my name is wrong. Costume was for Here Comes Suzy Snowflake. We sang and danced.




We would be about 8 years old

Sheryn (Lashley) Sauvé or Sherri donated one of her dance costumes from 1970 created by seamstress Dayna Featherstone back in early sixties when Sherri studied tap dance under local dance teacher Lee Howard. Sherri danced with Judy Wing, daughter of Ronald Wing. Together they won several dance and talent contests and even tried out for the Ted Mack show. Sherri Iona — This will be donated to the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum
