Please carry in clean soft-soled shoes for dancing, to protect the floor (and our reputation).

PARKING ALERT: We try to avoid crowding the residents of the neighborhood around the church. Please consider using one of 2 nearby parking lots on Center Street belonging to: United Labor Unions, 1 block south of the church or Herron Funeral Home, 1 block north (Use Heron for evening dances only, park there after 7PM).
