Sat Feb 24th 8:00 pm  to 11:00 pmTopHill Music Contradance Jim Fownes with Julie Metcalf and Jesse BallPlease join us this Saturday night for another wonderful contradance. We are sad to learn about a big loss to our dance community last week and will take time to honor our dear friend and dance leader Linda Leslie. We believe she would want us to gather and dance together as we remember her fondly. As part of his program, Jim will lead a few of his favorite dances that Linda wrote. New dances and new tunes will also be introduced in her memory. She leaves a big hole in many of us.
