Thank you for all your help throughout the entire 2016-2017 dance season. It's been a good year.
Here is our PSA for the last dance of the season. It's a big one.
Seven talented local musicians have formed a new band called The Daytimers and their sound is amazing.
This will be their first contra dance and it promises to be a big success.
A caller from Portland, Ric Goldman will be at the mic teaching and calling all evening.
Ric was a big hit in February, so we are looking forward to his return next Saturday.
Thanks again for all you do.
Have a great summer.
