Being a Parkette was an opportunity to learn many things.  Parkettes taught me about true commitment, dedication, discipline, focus, responsibility, being a team player, setting goals and developing attributes that I have carried me throughout my life. Best of all it created lifelong memories and friendships that exist today. This real life experience has gone beyond my wildest dreams! Parkettes was a stepping stone and inspired me to pursue a Degree in Dance from the U of M.  For 20 years I had Big Step Stidio and worked in schools integrating the arts in all curricular areas. Later as an Elementary teacher I continued to use movement in my classroom.to enhance and anchor learning.   Moving is learning and I still can't sit still.
What an honor, what an opportunity, what a journey!

Like most of us, belonging to the Parkettes helped shape the future of my life. Mrs. Libby taught us so many things that help make a person successful; the importance of being responsible, practice makes perfect, doing your best even under difficult circumstances and that hard work always pays off. These were all life lessons to live by but by far the most important part of being a Parkette for me were the lifelong friendships I developed during such an impressionable stage of my life. I treasure the memories of our time together and am happy to hear and share in the lives of these women today...

One of the most exciting days of my life was the evening when the 1967-1969 Parkettes came to my home and sang to me "We are the Parkettes, Parkettes are we ...  we're here to say you're a Parkette too."  I remember going to school the next day wearing a Parkette necklace! Then Westwood Junior High School where I attended published in their newsletter a picture and the names of those girls who had been selected to be in Parkettes.  Everyone was talking about it.  I overheard some students say, "Who is Pam Turner?"  I had never been popular in school but from that day on, I had become someone special - a Parkette.

I was born with a God-given ability to dance and loved being a Parkette.  Not only were we the St. Louis Park chorus line but so very much more.  We had opportunities to dance at many events in Minneapolis including the Aquatenial, the Winter Carnival, and of course at all the MN Vikings NFL home games as their cheerleaders but also at the democratic convention in Chicago and the Superbowl in New Orleans.  Some of my favorite routines: Consider Yourself, Dame, and Can Can.


Being a Parkette also gave me the opportunity to see so many places in the world that I have never had a chance to get back to: London, England, Paris, France, Amsterdam, Holland, Heidelberg, Germany, Lucerne, Switzerland, Venice, Florence, and Rome, Italy and Barcelona, Spain.  My senior year trip to Hawaii was a great time too but I have gotten back there since high school. I loved having the chance to dance for our troops stationed in Heidelberg, Germany and in Pearl Harbor.

Mrs. Libby was a very special person.  Parkettes would have never been what it was without her.  She had the vision to create a semiprofessional dance group that has never been matched anywhere.  She instilled responsibility, discipline, poise and professionalism in every one of us.

I am still dancing today, not quite in the same way as I did in high school.  My dance today is a form of worship.  I attend a Messianic Congregation and participate in traditional Messianic circle dances but also I worship with flags.  I first saw this type of worship in Haifa, Israel in 2003.  I was at a worship service called Harps and Bowls when a woman from Singapore came up to me and handed me a flag.  I asked her what I was to do with it.  She responded, "Just dance with Jesus with it."  The moment the flag was placed into my hand I received an anointing for flag worship.  Today I worship using flags made of metalic tissue lame and it is incredibly beautiful to watch.
