Hello Dancers,

        International Folk Dancing in Kalispell Saturday night, Sept. 3, from 8 to 10 p.m., at the
        Salvation Army gym, 110 Bountiful Drive. What's a holiday weekend without a little dancing,
        wherever you are?

        This is the last weekend for summer dance hours. Consensus last week was that
        starting Saturday Sept. 10 we will dance from 7 to 10 p.m.
