Kick Up Your Heels to Kick Off Summer
Park County Senior Center starts a new tradition with an annual barn dance
Polish up your boots, practice your steps and grab your partner: the Park County Senior Center is kicking off summer with its First Annual Old Fashioned Barn Dance!
This open-to-all-ages, fun-for-the-whole-family event will be held on Friday, June 23, beginning at 5:30 at the Senior Center, 206 South Main St. Dancing to country-western tunes, as well as schottisches (a partnered country dance), waltzes, polkas and round dances as performed by the Naughty Pine and Louie Armentaro Band will run until 9 p.m.
“The band combines the talents of three outstanding local musicians who make music that makes folks want to move their feet, playing lots of familiar tunes and new ones too,” said Nicole Divine, executive director of the Senior Center. “And that meets our mission of promoting the physical, intellectual and social well-being of our seniors.”
Barn dance chow, including brisket, chicken, barbecued beans and corn bread from the Northern Pacific Beanery are included in the ticket price, as well as peach and cherry cobblers from Meals on Wheels topped by Wilcoxson’s ice cream. Wine, and beer from Neptune’s Brewery, will be offered at a cash bar. Extensive Western decorations will convince party-goers they have been transported to a traditional barn.
