>>>Contradance at the East Concord Community Center ~ Concord, NH ~ 8pm ~ 603-225- 4917 , dwh@nhvt.net  , website: http://homepage.nhvt.net/dwh/contra.htm  ~ It's time to celebrate our 30th year—and say farewell to the venue that's been our home since 1995. The City of Concord will be closing the East Concord Community Center at the end of June and plans to sell the building. Let's get together with some old friends... Alice Morris and Gale Wood will share calling duties while the music comes from Vince O'Donnell (fiddle), Bruce Cobb (fiddle), Sylvia Miskoe (accordion), and Dave Moore (piano, accordion). (You already knew that June is National Accordion Awareness Month, right?) Join us for dances new and old, singing, and some great cake. When dances resume in September, it will be at a new venue TBA.
