Saturday dance!! OK, this isn't hiking but long night still needs filling so let's have some good clean old fashioned dancing!!!

There will be Contra Dancing from 8 PM to 11 PM at the American Legion Post in Wethersfield, CT. Beginner's lessons from 7:30 PM to 8 PM. All are welcome to come to the event (married or single). You don't have to bring a partner. Children are welcome too. Casual dress (best no high heels, though). his venue is non-alcoholic. There is an $12 fee (exceptions: $5 for students (14+ Jr./Sr. High or college), kids under 14 free, seniors (65+) $10) the Post charges for entry to cover their costs.

This is a great event with lots of fun. Dress like it is hot out for dancing as you will get hot dancing. Please note there is an overall limit as to how many people can fit in the Post so I have limited RSVP's. Parking is on the street. Just because you RSVP here does not necessarily mean there will be room in the Post if you arrive late.
