additions, corrections, and kind words
from the President:
Everyone dust off those dance shoes and get ready! Even though many complain about the cooler, blustery
weather, local folkies know it's a good thing. Get ready for festival month, everyone. We are not having a November
second Saturday contra because there will be TWO contras that weekend in Spokane Valley at the annual Fall Folk
In addition to all the wonderful variety of the festival, remember to try out the international folk dances taught by Karen
Wilson-Bell at the Unitarian church every second and forth Tuesday. See you on the dance floor!

The folklore society would like to start having a monthly or bimonthly jam session. The purpose would be
to play contra tunes at a slower pace for beginners or advanced people who want to brush up or help other musi-
cians. Jam night on the third Wednesdays can be intimidating since contra pace is very fast. If you are a musician
interested in leading, hosting, or participating, please contact Tashie Dial.
