Events and activities in the hills
Put on your dancing shoes and bring your appetite for the dance party set for Saturday, Dec. 17 at the Northwoods Inn on Bear Pond Road. This establishment, which has a colorful history, is holding these celebrations every other Saturday. The entrance donation of $15 is collected at the door. A deejay provides music and lessons in line dancing. Both line dancing and couples dancing finishes off the night. We hear the first such party held recently was a great success. Watch this column for upcoming dates in January.
The Thurman Connections Snowmobile Club is scheduled to meet at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 23 at the Bear Pond Road location. On the agenda will be ideas for developing new trails in the area. As this event is so close to Christmas, those planning to attend may want to call 623-9234 to confirm the event before venturing out.
