The Chichester Library Sponsors New Hampshire Barn Dance
The Chichester Library
will again be bringing Dudley Laufman to town for an evening of
contra dance on Saturday, January 28th at 7 p.m. at the Grange Hall,
54 Main Street, in Chichester. We were privileged to
sponsor Dudley, his partner Jacqueline and Silva Miskoe last year to
a record crowd. Amateur musicians were, and are, welcome to join
them as they lead us through the steps of the dances.
Although the number of
people attending last year was certainly gratifying, there is an
occupancy limit which must be observed. Therefore, we suggest those
who want to attend come early; because, once that limit is met,
people will have to be turned away.
As was done last year, a
nod will be given to the Scottish poet and lyricist Robert Burns.
The haggis that was served last year was such an appreciated treat
that it will again be on the refreshment table.
Donations will be
accepted to help defray the costs of this event.
