THE BATTLEFORDS — Club 70 has been holding dances in the Battlefords for more than 40 years and welcomes the community to try their hand at old-fashioned country dancing. On Saturday, the club held their first dance of the year at the Legion in North Battleford with a bar, a 50/50 raffle and a lunch at 11 p.m., with people from the Battlefords and area coming out to support them.
Anyone who loves to dance, wants to learn in a judgment-free environment, or is just looking to meet the friendliest people in the Battlefords, is welcome to attend. Tickets cost $15 per person, and dances are held every third Saturday from now until the end of May.
Carol Huys, a dance club executive since 1982, invites the younger generation out to try their hand at old-fashioned dancing. She adds that everyone and anyone is welcome, regardless of their experience. Though there are no classes, anyone who wants to learn is invited to give it a whirl.
“It’s a really good social event, and it keeps you moving … keep on coming,” Huys said.
One-man band Leon Ochs performed a selection of country music, circle dances and waltzes for people to enjoy. On Nov. 19, the Gold Tones will be playing, and on Dec. 17, The Shadows will be playing. For more information, reach out to Carol and Albert Huys at 306-386-2470.
