And, best of all, Quimper Grange is hosting the 4th annual building maintenance fund raiser on New Year's Eve!  Building hall maintenance continues to gouge our small budget (floors need refinishing, the crawl space has been cleaned and repaired, we need a bike rack, and we paid for a new electric main this summer).  Two bands - the Rose Street Ramblers with Katya Kirsch, and Airstream Traveler will be playing the tunes.  Dancing commences at 8:00 and will go till midnight.  Some drinks and holiday treats will be provide, and dancers are encouraged to bring food and (non alcoholic) drinks to share!  Admission is a suggested $12.00 donation. however NO ONE WILL BE TURNED AWAY AT THE DOOR.  Drop in with a donation and say hello, or stay all night and dance and celebrate your heart out.
