We are holding a Springtime family contra/square dance (we hope it’s spring by then!) on Sunday, May 4th, starting at 2:00PM until 5:00pm. Location: Legion Hall, Richards Landing. Special for this dance, we’ll start with dances and singing games for smaller children ages 4-7 and their parents and families, from 2 – 2:30.  Since Benoit and Zach are away, Québecois Band “MIL” (Claude Méthé , Dana Whittle and Denise Levac – all past instructors at AlgomaTrad and, as well, members of Dentdelion) will be on hand to provide the music! As usual, we will have our fabulous Caller Dan Gorno.  $10/Adults, $5/ Students.  Beginners Welcome of course.
