Music by Au Contraire, caller Lindsey Dono

Not your ordinary bandAu Contraire includes master ukulele picker Dick Hinshaw; Lori Bernstein on bass; “Chicago Bob” Longmire on harmonica and guitar; George Yount on harmonica and ukulele; and Barbara Dawson on keyboard.

What a treat to have Lindsey Dono back to call our dance this month! Originally from  Massachusetts, she has a lot of dancing in her background.  A favorite caller of the Northwest, her calm and pleasant calling is very understandable, but surprisingly energetic. 

Lindsey will teach a 1/2 lesson at 7:30 so come early if you're a beginner or just for a refresher.

Hall and Grounds Progress Report

Perseverance was needed to get the last
kitchen sink installed. Although it was a huge hassle, Grange member, Farren, persevered. The first sink didn't fit and had to be returned, the second sink didn't fit either, the third sink had to be special ordered but arrived damaged so a fourth sink had to be ordered. It arrived after the other plumbing work was done. So the plumber had to come out again to install it. It's in now, thanks Farren!

In addition Farren purchased connectors and got the irrigation system up and running for the berm surrounding the Quimper Grange parking area. The plants are much happier now.

And the 22 new tables Farren ordered for Quimper Grange are now in the hall thanks to Rob Harbour who physically moved them into the hall when they were delivered.
