Never explored the Colony School? Plan to stay even later for an evening of merriment at an old-fashioned barn dance. The school is the perfect backdrop for such an event! Music will be provided by The Rusty Pickup String Band and caller Gail Hintze. All are welcome; dance instruction for beginners is included.

Admission to the barn dance is $5 per person.
