If Fridays Aren’t Enough

June 2017

News from the English Country Dance group in Yarmouth: “317 Maine is celebrating the end of another session of ECD by throwing another potluck and free dance  party next Wednesday, at the Yarmouth Historical Society. Potluck at 6, dancing starts around 7 or perhaps earlier, as soon as we finish eating and talking!  One of things we’ll do in between the potluck and the dance is talk about how we want to continue with the dancing.  Perhaps you can join us?”

    Folk Dance Brunswick Friends-
    I’ve learned of a St. Patrick’s Day party involving live Irish music and dance at St. Charles Borromeo Church that sounded like it could be of interest to some of us.
    The party will be held on Saturday, March 14, from 7 to 9 p.m. at St. Charles Church, 132 McKeen Street in Brunswick. Performing will be John Murphy and his wife and daughters, who have been playing and dancing in this style for a decade or more. John is a psychiatrist colleague and friend of mine, and he tells me that he is hoping to teach an Irish dance or two with the expectation that this will be new to most or all attending. This is NOT a touring group or a dance workshop, but might be fun- FYI.
    FMI 725-2624. Suggested donation $10.
