Clemmons – Cats Love Milk – Dean Snipes calling
Tuesday, February 13 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
On Tuesday, Feb 13 at Clemmons Civic Club we will have a few special treats to celebrate Valentines Day. And, whats great about this is that you don’t have to bring a valentine to the dance, you will dance with all the people in the hall!
Cats Love Milk and music is milk to these 3 ContraCats !
You’ll hear recorder, fiddle, guitar, bass and percussion on various lively tune sets as the ContraCats show us their licks.
Caller Dean Snipes will be herding these cats as well as the room full of happy dancers for this special occasion.
