This month the Third Saturday Contra Dance will be held from 7-9 p.m., May 18, at the San Juan Island Grange. The cost is a $10 donation at the door, or $5 for students.

This month’s caller is Carol Piening from Olympia, and the band is the Possum Carvers from Port Townsend, featuring Scott Marckx on fiddle, Jeanie Murphy on banjo and Chris Cooper on guitar, and wonderful old-time music and energetic cheerful calling by Piening.

As always with contra dance, all dances are taught, no need to bring a partner and no need for previous contra dance experience. Everyone is welcome; we all have a good time together to make the dance happen.

This dance is sponsored by San Juan Island Grange #966. Check out our Facebook page by searching for San Juan Islands Contra Dance.
