Hi-Land Swingers – Wednesday Dances
Hi-Land Swingers have afternoon dances planned for Wednesday October 30 and November 6, 2019 at the Rocky Ridge YMCA at 1:30 to 3:30.  The address is 11300 Rocky Ridge Road NW. Tom Dakers is calling, and cost is $6.00 per person.  We have plenty of space and welcome visitors from the Square Dance World.  These are the final two dances of our four afternoon dance test. We will then evaluate whether to change our regular dances to afternoons, or to maintain our evening dance times.
