Hello Dancers,

        International Folk Dancing in Kalispell is Saturday Sept. 18, from 7 to 10 p.m., at the Salvation Army gym,
        110 Bountiful Way. Remember we are back to fall-winter-spring hours.

        Kalispell Contra Dancing will resume the 2nd Saturday of the month, beginning in October at the Salvation Army,
        according to organizer Kathy Neff. The exception will be November, when the Rails to Trails group holds their
        annual dance/pie auction on the 2nd Saturday (we would shift up to the first Saturday that month). So the
        Contra Dances will be on Oct. 9, Nov. 6, Dec. 11 (at Northridge Lutheran since Salvation Army Gym is usually busy),
        Jan. 8, Feb. 12, March 12, and April 9.  The May dance will likely be held in combination with the Missoula group
        at the Methodist Church Camp during the camp's clean-up weekend. For more info, e-mail kathy at nathykeff AT yahoo
