Halloween Party, Supper, Contra Dance at Pierce’s Hall Saturday

We’ve got a busy dance night this month at Pierce’s Hall, Saturday October 25. We always do something special for the Halloween dance, and this year the itinerary is as follows:

4:30 p.m. – For kids!
Annie Frelich (of The Annies will celebrate Autumn and Halloween with songs for younger children.
Costume parade
Scavenger hunt throughout the “Haunted Hall” with treats for all.

6:00 to 7:00 p.m. – Potluck supper

7:00 p.m. – All ages welcome: Amy Cann will start teaching family-friendly dances at 7:00, evolving gradually into beginner contra dances by 7:30.

8:00 – 10:30 p.m. The traditional Halloween East Putney Community Contra Dance–costumes encouraged! Amy Cann and the All Comers Band play spooky songs and classic contra standards. Caller is TBA due to last-minute unforeseen circumstances, but we’ll have someone great lined up shortly. Because the lead-in dance with Amy Cann will get things underway earlier than usual, come right at 8:00 if you can.

The suggested donation for the contra dance is $7. To reach Pierce’s Hall in East Putney, go north from Putney Village for 2 miles on Rt. 5. Turn right onto East Putney Falls Road and go 1/2 mile until you come to the driveway to the hall on the left.
