Friday Oct 31 Dancing: Halloween Party

Since Halloween falls on Friday this year, we'll revive the old custom of having a folk dancing Halloween party - so, wear a costume, and bring snacks (or, just come as you are and eat snacks).  We'll try to come up with a list of Halloween dances, such as:

    Haunt-er Dro

You get the idea... come prepared to add to the list (or, just come and dance)

Octoberfest Sat Oct 18 5-8pm St Paul's UCC Downers Grove

St Paul's UCC in Downers Grove where we've been dancing for the past 10 years is having an Octoberfest potluck evening Saturday Oct 18 at the church, and we're going to be leading/teaching some folk dances as part of the festivities.  If you're free that evening, please join us, it will be good to have some regular folk dancers to help out.

The potluck meal starts at 5pm, and we'll be starting the dancing sometime between 6:30-7pm, and dancing as long as people stay interested.
