I am starting to think about the September Square dance. As per the last 2 years, the September dance falls on the Saturday of Wooden Boat Festival, and we danced on Union Wharf. That means we will have a back drop of the stars, the moon, and Port Townsend Bay while we frisk around on a dance floor 10 feet over the water. What more could a square dancer want?
Port Townsend's Ferry Hoppers have just returned to Port Townsend from a Lopez Island square dance adventure and are scheduled to rock Quimper Grange on May 12. The band includes
Caller Colin Sterling
Channing Showalter, along with Chimacum favorites Joanne Pontrello , Paul Denison, and Annie Schermer. The caller is Colin Sterling from Olympia. Colin has called square dances from way up in Conway all they way down to Olympia. I have been wrangling to get Colin to call one of our dances for several years and he is finally on the schedule. This is the last dance of the season; don't be left out! Dancing starts at 8PM (dancers can come early and jam with band
at 7 PM) and goes till 11PM.
All dances are taught. All experience levels are welcome and encouraged. This is a family friendly event (no alcohol). Quimper Grange is located at 1219 Corona in Port Townsend. Admission is $5 if you arrive on bike or foot or bring a non disposable water bottle; $7 for car drivers; 16 and under is free. Bring yourself, a special friend, the family, or the whole tribe. Come at 7 and jam with the band. For more information, call Dave Thielk at 360-602-1270.
