The Contra Borealis Dancers ( want to thank a number of people and groups for helping make the Winter Dance Weekend with band Nor’easter (Max, Julie, Cedar) and caller Rebecca Lay in early February a great success. This was a total volunteer effort so the support of our community was essential. Those who attended some or all of the events seem to have had an awesome time. This made the effort worthwhile. We hope this event has energized our multi-generational contradance community.

Organizing Committee: Charley and Lynn Basham, Brad Krick, Andie Rice and Gary Newman.
