The East Dover Fire Department is putting on a square dance on Saturday 4/16/2016 at the Town Hall. This is not a fundraiser—it’s just to get out and have a good time because this strange winter is presumably over, and to thank our community for all the support.
For those who didn’t grow up here, you may not know that the Dept had a long history of hosting dances from its early beginnings when the dances helped pay for the first firetruck. This tradition lapsed before I appeared in 2009. Alan Bills of Wardsboro (Bills Lumber, The Bills Band) used to call dances for us in the past, and he is with us in hoping this tradition will endure.
If you’re like me and have not participated in a square dance since high school, DONT FREAK OUT! Alan will coach us through it, and we’re going to have a famous time.
Sticky Fingers has kindly volunteered to provide some delicious sweets to follow our simple fare of hot dogs and beverages. Thank you Heather and Dave!
The dance starts at 6pm, so feel free to bring kids. They will show us how it’s done!
