Back to School,
Madeline DJs, Denise assists.
|End of Summer, Back to School or Children's Night - whichever one you are celebrating (or maybe you are not), come to folk dancing! Some of our friends will be coming back from a summer away. Also, we encourage parents and grandparents to bring their children and grandchildren -- the youngsters will have more fun if there are more dancers their age. This children's night is an event we want to promote several times a year (see flier). Madeline Brock will be our DJ for this lively evening. Madeline will be assisted by Denise Fynmore.|
