Contrary to Popular Opinion: A Blog
Raffle tickets! Get your raffle tickets! If you were at the last Dayton dance, you know how temperamental our sound system is. It's no wonder because it is more than 20 years old! We really need your help in raising funds to support the purchase of a newer sound system. Right now, all dance admissions are used to just cover the costs of the dance, which is why we are fund raising with the 50-50 Raffle. Buy a ticket or two yourself, or help us by selling the tickets to others you know! Tickets are $1 each and can be purchased at any Dayton or Harrisonburg dance. Increase your odds and purchase tickets with a group of friends!
May 7 is the Belmont Yard Sale. We will GLADLY take donations of items to sell at the yard sale (read: we'll do all the hard work for you!) to raise funds to support Dayton Contra. Bring items to a dance in April or contact us to arrange a time to donate your items. Now, if you're my kind of crazy and feel like sharing part of your Saturday with some like-minded contra folk, we will gladly accept your help on May 7 during the sale. Contact Ruth at a dance to sign-up for a volunteer shift.
May 14 is the last Dayton dance until September 10, 2016. We look forward to seeing you again before the summer!
Monday Night is continuing to look for a new place to dance as Massanetta Springs will be unavailable to us starting mid- to late-June. If you know of a location, preferably closer to downtown Harrisonburg and with a wooden floor, that we could use on Monday nights, contact Eleanor or send us anemail. Monday Night dances will continue throughout the summer, location TBD (check contracorners.com for updated information about dance locations).
And, I think that's all, folks. We appreciate your continued support of the Shenandoah Valley Contra Dances. You're so much fun to dance with and we are so proud of this friendly-city dance community. Ya'll are awesome.
See you on the floor!
