President’s Corner
Welcome back to contra dancing every Wednesday night at 7:30 pm at the Woman's Club
with a dancing lesson before at 7:15 pm. All are welcome.

First-time dancers get a free pass for next dance.

Our annual memberships are $20-25 and give you a good discount to all future dances.

There is a wonderful Lady of the Lake dance camp Oct 5-6-7 at beautiful Camp Sid N Sen
on the shore of the lake in Idaho with some spaces still left.

 A highlight of our fall program is the free for all Spokane Folk Festival held at Spo-
kane Community College in November.
Always a fun week end, Saturday and Sunday with lots of music, dancing, jams and arts and crafts.
Come one or both days November 10-11.

Your Board has developed a Code of Conduct and sexual harassment policy for the
Spokane Folklore Society that strives for a safe and comfortable environment for all
Available at the front ticket desk each Wednesday contra on request.

We always need volunteers to help set up and clean up after Wednesday contra dance and we
need creative ideas to help make our SFS stronger and better.
We have a great fall and winter line up of bands and callers and hope you can
bring a friend and keep on dancing

Come Join the Fun!
At Lady of the Lake Family Camp on the shores of Lake Coeur d’Alene in North Idaho, families learn and play together. Daily age-based workshops in art, dance, singing, music and more, highlight a busy day finishing with hours on the beach, swimming, sailing, hiking or just relaxing.
We have a great staff for the 2018 Family Week lined up, which includes, so far:
 In Tent City (Betz, Graham, Seth, and David Richards)  Greg and Jere Canote from Seattle, leading us in song at our family gatherings, and Jere teaching a Ukulele class  Jody Kruskal brings a collection of games, and dances, and witty fun  Susan Michaels from Los Angeles, sharing stories and calling contras  Darryl Thomas and Valerie Bergman will provide dance instruction Mel Luedders with our young ones
Registration is open for Fall Weekend Lady of the Lake— October 5—7. All the info you need is at www.ladyofthelake.org!
