t was a crisp fall night at the Lazy J Ranch — perfect weather for a
down-home hoedown, hayride and bonfire. More than 20 couples
dressed in jeans, plaid shirts and cowboy hats moseyed on down to
Milford Nov. 7 for a night of fun sponsored by the couples committee of
the Young Adult Division of the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit.
The Lazy J Ranch boasts an old-fashioned atmosphere; the group gathered
at the two-story, turn-of-the-century barn for pizza, snacks, drinks and
"I've never square danced before Todd Kroll of Birmingham admitted.
He attended the event with his wife, Jennifer.
"Their professional caller was great; he got everybody up and involved:'
Kroll said. "He was actually able to teach everyone there all the dance steps!'
Participants also hopped onboard tractor-drawn haywagons for a night-
time ride through the country fields. Afterward, there was more dancing, a
bonfire and s'mores.
"It was really a lot of fun," said Kroll. "The stars were shining and it was just
a great fall night"
Spotted in the hoedown crowd were: Jill and Craig Menuck, Shirley and
Lenny Cetner and liana and Zack Liss, all of Birmingham; Colleen and
Lowell Weiss and Alexis and Michael Schostak, all of Bloomfield Hills;
Stacie and Jason Ostrofsky and Elissa and Rabbi Jason Miller, all of
