He is the recipient of the CALLERLAB Milestone Award. Wade says, Those of us who have made our living as Square Dance Callers owe it to the activity to put back into the activity as least as much as we have taken out. Square Dancing is a fun recreation. Callers should make sure that it always stays that way. 9

11 FEBRUARY HAPPENINGS Saturday, February 2 Thursday, February 14 Monday, February 18 FUN FACTS ABOUT THE CANDY HEARTS The New England Confectionery Company (NECCO) makes more than 8 billion candy hearts every year to keep up with the demand for the sweet treat. Every day from late February through mid- January, around 100,000 pounds of conversation candy hearts are made. The entire amount produced during this time sells out in six weeks. Candy hearts are the best-selling Valentine's Day candy. In 2010, for the first time in 145 years, the company discarded all of the sayings for the conversation hearts and created a new line with expressions selected by the public. The most popular new sayings for conversation candy hearts are "Tweet Me," "Text Me," "You Rock," "Love Bug," "Soul Mate," and "Me + You." In order to get the old sayings, you can have them custom made -- but you'll have to buy a full production run (1.7 million candy hearts!). 11
