Hi folks,

 

Here are the pfs calendar items for this month. At this point it’s really just the slow jam. We'll do some polling here again to figure out what’s happening with the dance. Thanks!

June 13th and 27th -Saturdays: SLOW JAMS (Second and fourth Saturdays) from 1-3 PM 314 East Second St. attic (up the long driveway and up the back stairs.) For any interested folk musicians All experience levels welcome, including raw beginners. We may go over a piece more than once.  Bring music or chords if you have them and share a little of what you are working on. There will not be an audience. We just go round in a circle picking a favorite tune, and others try to join in. Perfection not even considered! Come join us.

 

 

June 20th: Saturday: COMMUNITY CONTRA DANCE with music by a groovy band and calling by somebody cool, at the Old Blaine Schoolhouse (Corner of Eid and Blaine Roads). Potluck dinner 6:30, dancing at 7:30 PM.

 

This will be our first dance of the summer out at the lovely Old Blaine Schoolhouse. One of our favorite places to dance. We'll be asking around again to see if our dancers are ready to start dancing again. We're not sure yet who will be playing and calling, but I’m sure that whoever it is, we'll have a great time. Stay tuned. We'll let you know where things stand when we figure it out. Perhaps, we'll see you there!

 

You can find a map to the schoolhouse at our website, palousefolk.org, or in one of our newsletters in the bin on the Moscow Coop bulletin board.
