Calendar of Events

            Our calendar attempts to be accurate. But it's always a good idea to check with the sponsoring venue for late changes, cost, ticket availability,  etc.
          There are folk dances every Wednesday at the Women's Club except July and August.  The third Wednesday in the month is a Jam Dance, with jamming musicians.
                    Events sponsored by the Folklore Society are highlighted in lilac.
