HANCOCK -- The Thimbleberry Band will be playing for an Old-Time Midwinter Dance from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 15, at the Finnish American Heritage Center on Quincy Street in Hancock. Bring a dish to pass and your own tableware for a potluck supper at 6 p.m. preceding the dance.
Dances will include traditional polkas, waltzes, schottisches, tangos, etc. Also, Ann Pace will teach and call some "figure dances" -- squares, contras, circles.
"It will be easy, it will be fun, it will be family-friendly, and it will be free," says musician Oren Tikkanen. "The best offer you'll get this week. See you there."
