|New Start Time for 2nd
Saturday Contras (starting in July)
Due to the neighbor's noise complaints, we
have decided to end our contras at 10:00,
when Wethersfield’s stricter nighttime noise
limit takes effect. We can’t simply start
our dances earlier because another group
rents the hall before us, leaving us
insufficient setup time. So, beginning
with our July 11 contra, we will dance
7:30-10pm (newcomer's workshop at
7:15). We’ll try this arrangement for
the next few months, possibly adjusting
further based on that experience. (Note that
June contra is unchanged at 8-11pm)
Free Admission to
The July contra dance (7:30-10pm) will be
free admission for all dancers (though we'll
gladly and gratefully accept donations),
thanks to Contra Committee member Jen
Jasenski, who wishes to celebrate her own
(and regular dancer Cate Mahony’s) birthday
by treating all to a free dance. Please join
us for the contra and birthday cake with Jen
HCD Toll-Free Number Discontinued
