New Year's Eve Square and Contra Fundraiser at Quimper Grange

Location: 
Quimper Grange #720
1219 Corona Street
Port Townsend, WA 98368

From Fran Post:

Dance out the old, and dance in the new at Quimper Grange on Tuesday, December 31. Quimper Grange is hosting the 4th annual building maintenance fund raiser on New Year's Eve! Building hall maintenance continues to gouge our small budget. In the past couple of years we have put a new roof on, cleaned up and repaired our crawl space, refinished the dance floor, and installed a new electric main. But there is much more that needs to be done. Floors need refinishing
