We took some time off on this beautiful, sunny day and attended the fifth Annual Aurora Barn Dance at Brookside Farm. This is a fundraiser, sponsored by the Aurora Project, Inc.
The barn was built in 1898 and is now privately owned by the Utterback family.
While everyone enjoyed a great meal, apple cider and mulled wine, Wolf Creek Session performed. They are a wonderful group that performs a mixture of Celtic roots music and traditional Appalachian sounds.
What’s a barn dance without a ‘dance band’? Enter Born Old playing traditional, old-time music from West Virginia.
Doug Van Gundy’s mother was the square dance caller. She did a wonderful job, getting most everyone involved.
After Lena participated in the children’s hike in Cathedral State Park, she and Sharon joined in the fun for the final set of square dances.
Wish we could share the beautiful music of the final waltz; so lovely it brought tears to your eyes. A wonderful time had by all, please join us next year!
