Come one, come all to a Round & Square Dance!
Have you ever been to a square dance? It’s fun and you’re invited! Mark your calendar for a Round & Square Dance to benefit the History Center, Friday, April 28, 7-11 p.m., at Cornell Cooperative Extension, 4487 Lake Ave. in Lockport. Music will be provided by “Country Memories.”
Square dancing is not only fun, it’s easy. A “caller” calls out the steps during each dance, which is a big help to beginners. Some dancers wear costumes but this is optional.
Tickets are $7. For more information, please call Dick at 434-7612, or Melissa at Niagara History, 434-7433.
