Barnstormers to Play for Coos Bay Contra Dance

Contra dancing is coming to Coos Bay this Saturday, December 5, at 7 o’clock.  This light-hearted form of social dancing is easy to learn, and lots of fun for the whole family.  There will be three hours of live music at the
Harding Learning Center located at 755 South 7th.  For this special event, a guest caller from Roseburg, Woody Lane, will teach every move and figure you need to know.  Woody is an experienced caller with an exciting repertoire of dances.  He will give a lesson at 7PM, and first timers who show up for this lesson will receive a ticket for free admission to their next dance.
Contra dancing in
Coos Bay is sponsored by the South Coast Folk Society.  They invite the public to enjoy a full evening of contra, circle and square dances.  Singles, couples and families are all welcome, and no partner is needed. The music for this month’s Community Contra Dance will be provided by The Eugene Barnstormers.  The Barnstormers are a perennial favorite of the local dance community.  Their infectious rhythms will make you feel like dancing all night.  They play lively old-timey music which blends seamlessly with Woody’s calling.
The Folk Society hosts Contra Dances every first Saturday at the
Harding Learning Center, and every third Saturday at the Greenacres Grange.   Both venues offer a full evening of social dancing to great live music.  These events are alcohol and fragrance free.  Refreshments are available.  Doors open at 6:45PM.  Admission: General $7, Students w/ID and Seniors over 60 $6, Members $5, and Supervised Children under 6 are free. For more information call Paul at 541-572-5370 or visit or Facebook.

  June 4 2016 Art In The Park

The proposal from the State Parks Department is a  two session instruction / teaching session for  anyone interested in plein air painting.  There will also be  a four scene  presentation from Shakespeare performed in the gardens at Shore Acres by local talented actors.

The park has been a favorite painting spot for the various groups of plein air painters for  over a decade.  There are three groups who sometimes overlap and have all contributed to a history of the changes in the landscape.

Stephanie Miller, Park Ranger, is coordinator for this event.  She has contacted Sally Rolicheck and I agreed to carry this forward on behalf of BAAA.

As Mr Tom Leahy says Art, Tourism and Culture are the mainstays of our economy in the Bay Area.  This type of event showcases the sense of place and community for our area.  I feel this is a very important event that needs to be supported and presented in a well organized enthusiastic way.  This will need the support of everyone who is a member of this organization.

In our initial discussion we covered time and the duration of each session.   This is a  seven hour actual time commitment am/pm on a Saturday. Stephanie Miller will speak at our January meeting about the event.

We need a group of people in the planning and execution of this event.  A group large enough to be able to cover unexpected time issues for other members of the group.  Be  a Sunset Bay Painters in the Park promoter!   Joan 541-217-8242
