Adobe Squares of Petaluma was formed in 1971. Prior to 1971, two square dance clubs existed in Petaluma: the Petaluma HipDippers (PHD‟s) and the Petaluma Whirlers. Both clubs had been in existence for many years. In late 1970 the two clubs decided to merge into one new club, Adobe Squares of Petaluma. The name for the new club was derived from a local California history attraction, Petaluma Adobe State Historic Park. The first club caller was Ralph Thomas, then Skip Graham, followed by the late Nate Bliss and our present caller Scot Byars. The Adobe Squares ceased operation on August 21, 2012.
