The monthly third Saturday contra dance will be held Saturday, Oct. 19 from 7-9 p.m. at the Grange Hall in Friday Harbor.

Admission is a $10 donation at the door, $5 students.

This month’s caller is Tom Wimmer from Seattle, and the Band is The Beats, from Bellingham, consisting of Steve Blum-Anderson on fiddle and Brigget LeClair on piano. This trio of folks are very talented and will be sure to get the crowd up and spinning around! As the weather turns colder and wetter, a nice evening at the Grange Hall with good music and good friends is just the ticket. So come join the party!

As always, all dances are taught, and there is no need to bring a partner since with contra dance we change partners with each dance. And no need to have any contra dance experience. We have new dancers each time and they pick it right up and have a blast!

The dance is sponsored by San Juan Island Grange No. 966. Check our Facebook page at San Juan Islands Contra Dance.
