St. Paul’s Hosting Family-Friendly Barn Dance to Support Haiti

Submitted by St Paul’s Episcopal Church

Everyone is invited to a barn dance for Haiti from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 11 at the St. Paul’s parish hall, 100 Pine Hill Rd. This is a family-friendly social event with light refreshments included. 

This dance is a fundraiser for St. Paul’s Haiti outreach partners. It allows the church to continue funding student scholarships for Haitian nursing and therapy students. It will also help support the Children’s Nutrition Program in Haiti.

What is a barn dance? Traditionally held in barns, but now held in any building designed for large group events, a barn dance is an informal social gathering for the purpose of dancing in circle, square, and line formations to lively traditional tunes. A caller walks people through the dances and then prompts them in time with the music. No prior dance experience of any kind is required, and if you’re not up for dancing, come watch the fun and listen to great music.

In addition, St. Paul’s parishioners Beth Parkes will be the caller and Judy Criscitiello will also be on fiddle.
