Summer Contra Dance, "What Cheer? Brigade", "Loyd Family Players", Slack Key Guitar, Chris Yeaton, Adam Werner, May Quimper Grange Sponsored


There is a lot happening at Quimper Grange this summer: dances, dance classes, concerts, art classes, private parties, fundraising events...Here is a sampling of summer fun:

 June 14th Contra Dance from 7:30-10:30 
Many of you may not know that it was George and Jo Yount who contacted the Grange in 1986 about using the hall for dances and arranged to refinish the floor in exchange six months free rent. They have continued monthly dances for 28 years. That's dedication! Nan Evans will be calling the June 14th Contra Dance to the music of the PT Cruisers.

"Searching for True Gold" with Kevin Carr
In May Quimper Grange pulled out the stops and sponsored three events:"Searching for True Gold" a story telling and music event; "Growing Tomatoes in Port Townsend", an educational program; and the last Quimper Grange Square Dance of the season, an affordable social event. When you see that an event is Quimper Grange sponsored this means that has been organized and publicized by member/volunteers and advances our mission to serve the community.
