I have great memories of being a Parkette, and am thankful for the patience of Karen Hyde who taught me the dances for tryouts in her basement.   I had two left feet and very little dance experience, but she helped me to learn the steps and listen to the beat in the music, and I am grateful to her for her time and efforts.  I had many other teachers, such as my Unit leaders, Linda, Sue, and Marti Starr; so thankfully, I got better & felt comfortable dancing & cheering.  WOW!  What fun we had...cheering at the Viking Games outside at the Old Met Stadium--Brr! We had to wear layers of tights and nylons to combat the cold Minnesota winters--parades where the asphalt was so hot I thought the soles of my boots would melt (definitely keeps your feet moving & your knees up!); half-time shows at the Stadium & at school; park Petites; Pom-Pom girls & football games in St. Louis Park; and of course, Spring Break trips to Florida/Bahamas & to Hawaii.  I think the tropical trips left sand in my shoes, which influenced my move to Key West in 1984, where I later earned my degree in Education.  But, best of all, were the friendships made, and the feeling that comes with being a part of something so special...50th Anniversary!  WOW! Thanks for the fun times & the great memories!  Send Natalie a MessageSend Natalie a Message

Back in the day . . . before Title IX, health clubs, girls' athletic teams, equal opportunities . . . we had Parkettes. We had Mrs. Libby - a tougher coach than many of the boys' coaches - and each other.  We travelled together, danced hard together, had each others' backs and, most importantly, had fun together.  If mesh tights tore, someone had an extra pair; after a devestating teenage break-up, someone had a shoulder;  unreasonable parents?  someone had a solution or a way to get away with some mischief.  The experience magnified our time at Park!

Some of the best years of my life!  I still brag about being a MVC - the one who lead the line in or out - not because I was tall.

Just an fyi - the "Then" photo on the left is me and "a boy" in Malaga, Spain on one of our trips!  Very innocent, but how fun.

Here's a memory:
For those who went to Hawaii in '67 (I think) and took surfing lessons from "Rabbit" on Waikiki Beach - I found him 35 years later!  I was in Hawaii for a meeting, had some free time, and went looking for him after I had read an article on Waikiki Beach in the 60s and he was in the article!  I went back to the Surf Rider Hotel and Moana Hotel area where we took the lessons, and - long story short - there he was watching and judging a surf competition, sitting in a chair.  He was in his early 90s then.  I got so excited I could hardly hold back tears because it reminded me of that time in my life. I called my two sisters (Jill and Jan, also Parkettes) and mom (a Parkette chaperon on that trip), and told them.  Some surfer dude took our picture together.  It's framed sitting on a shelf in my house.

   When I saw the article regarding Parkettes being removed from the Viking's previous cheerleader roster, I laughed and said, "Now they will have to invite us."
   Whoo hoo......yes girls, let's get out there and show them what we've still got!

My favorite part of Parkettes - other than the close friends - was simply dancing. We were MORE than Vikings cheerleaders. The basketball halftime shows, conventions, and practices were thrilling to me. Consider Yourself, Dame, and Rockin' Round the Clock were favorites.

Being in the Parkettes was one of the highlights of my life, which I appreciate more the older I get. The discipline and professionalism have carried through into many other aspects of my life. Never settle for anything less than the best!
