The Central Iowa Barn Dance is happening that evening, across the
parking lot, at 130 S. Sheldon from 7:30-10:30 pm, so you can go to
both events for an even more exciting evening.

VOLUNTEERS: do you want to help? we could use help with set-up
(6pm), clean-up (8:30), welcoming (any time), and ESPECIALLY, with
taking a load of stuff in your car at the end to be delivered to a
donation site. please contact me if you are interested in helping.

Please join us for a fun, useful community event!!!
