For the future: Contra dances have been a part of 3RFS for a couple of decades. Unfortunately, the core group of volunteers diminished to a point that it was too much for those who were left and the dances struggled to break even financially. Therefore, our monthly contra dance series is being suspended for the foreseeable future until there is sufficient interest to bring it back.
Our thanks to Artie Kapell (booking), Kathy Kehl (producer), Tim Riordan and Andrew Rakowski (sound), Peggy Hamilton (publicity), Cindy Rawowski (frequent volunteer caller), Meryl Birn (long-time booking agent and producer), and the other volunteers who brought contra dancing to Three Rivers country for so many wonderful years!
