Benefit Contra and More 11/8: Toss the Possum and Shawn Brenneman

Yes! Save the Date of November 8 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. for a benefit raise money for Montain Justice Blacksburg, Concerned Citizens of Giles County and Energy Justice Network.

The contra dance band extraordinaire, Toss the Possum (check out their new logo above, and Blacksburg's equally gifted caller (musican and contra dancer) Shawn Brenneman have graciously volunteered to show us a wonderful time

So come on down on at 7 p.m. Sunday, November 8 to the the YMCA's dance floor at 1000 North Main in Blacksburg, Virginia, marked "B" on the map. ("A" is the Lyric Theater, where Coal Country is showing tomorrow night at 7 - 9:30.)

You can charge a ticket by donating $10 or more here (just save a receipt to show at the door. ) Action Center Inc. is our non-profit umbrella, so your donations are tax deductible. Just write "November 8 contra dance" on the designation line. And if you can't come, you can still donate and be a sponsor. And please help us spread the word. We'd like to get at least 100 dancers. If you pre-register, we won't be sweating it.

So come on out. And if you've never contra danced, don't worry. We'll show you how. You're allowed to completely mess up for your first year of dancing. After that, you may mess up, if you smile while you do it. We LOVE new dancers. And if you refuse to dance, the music will be worth listening to, I promise you.
