The Come 'N Take It Squares began in late 1981 when a few local school teachers, including the Superintendent and his wife, joined together with several hardbadgers who had relocated into the Gonzales area. The main objective of the teachers was fun and exercise. Soon a square dance club was formed. Bill Obert served as the first caller. Keeping a dance club alive in a rural area was very difficult. The tenacious spirit of only four to six couples kept the club going through many years of struggle. Over the years the numbers change, presently our membership stands at 20 dancers.
