ICE CREAME SOCIAL 6:30 -Tune Rider-Dean Snipes Calling
Saturday, August 19, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 11:00 pm
First a word from our sponsor: “Note the new rates below which began in July”
Ice Cream Social!! Our 3rd and final dance in August will be the delicious annual tradition of the summer Grange dances!
We will converge on the Guilford Grange at Greensboro with ice chests and ice cream makers full of our favorite cool cow confections at 6:30pm to enjoy together. Obviously we all don’t need to bring some in order to have plenty but if you’d like to, please do. A few toppings you bring will crown our efforts with tasty additions.
This is a great time to bring guests who have never danced at any of our dances before or, maybe have never even contra danced at all, because they can get into this particular dance for FREE! The Treasurer said so and I believe him!
After an hour of fine fellowship over frozen food we’ll find ourselves on the floor doing the beginners lesson at 7:30. At 8 everyone will find random partners and begin dancing to the music of the fantastic band, Tunerider! These two expert contra dance musicians have got some really great tune sets that will propel us into dancing paradise!
Having the well known “mighty fine” dance caller, Dean Snipes, from the Charlotte area up to teach and call each dance from his collection, with style and humor, will make the evening even more special and enjoyable! Yep going to be a mighty fine evening all around!
School Construction and PARKING
Because the school is under construction we suggest some people park on the curb along Lea Ray Drive. Leaving the Grange, turn right on Lindley Road then immediate left on Lea Ray, a residential street. Please do not block driveways or fire hydrants, etc. No parking at the nearby church please.
Also, to park at The Grange, follow special instructions on signs. And, you can park in the old school parking lot down on the right which is farthest from the Grange.
