Ron and Barb Lowe met on the dance floor many years ago. They have been dancing since 1968 and Ron has been calling since 1969. Barb has stood beside Ron and has been his manager, organizer, and co-pilot through their dancing career. In 1970 Ron became the caller for Beaus and Bells in Saint John. At that time they lived in Digby, Nova Scotia. He would take the Ferry from Digby to Saint John, call the dance, and return home on the late crossing. They were instrumental in organizing the NB Callers Association and the Round Dance Leaders Association. Ron has called at National Conventions in Halifax, Vancouver and Saint John. He has been on the staff of two Caller schools and has attended workshops in Newfoundland and Saskatchewan. Congratulations Ron and Bard on receiving the Distinguished Service Award.
