Howdy Dancers,

        Kalispell International Folk Dancers Dec. 5,
        from 7 to 10 pm, at the Salvation Army gym, 110 Bountiful Drive. For new
        dancers, easier dances are taught for at least the first hour, with more
        advanced dancing later in the evening. We ask a contribution of $3 per person
        to help pay the rent for the hall. This week we celebrate the birthday of Russ,
        one of our fearless leaders, so bring along your singing voice and a snack, if
        you're so inclined.

        Contra Dancing is scheduled for next Saturday, Dec. 12, at Northridge Lutheran
        Church, since the Salvation Army gym will be in use for Christmas preparations.
        Band will be Skippin' a Groove. Caller will be Morna Leonard. Northridge
        Lutheran Church is at 323 Northridge Drive. Dancing is from 7:30-10:30 PM.
        Admission is $7 for adults & teens, $13 for families, free for kids & non-dancers.

        A possible good source for international music comes from Sally Jenkins in
        Oklahoma. She says a friend sent me her the link, which has a lot of music
        from old 78's that are now digitized and supposedly in the public domain.

        Elsewhere around Montana, Cecelia Notess advises that two great music events
        are scheduled tonight in Bozeman: A contra and a concert!  Which to attend?
