100th Anniversary Hootenanny

Friday, November 3, 2023

Our focus during this anniversary year has been to feature our residents’ talents in all forms of art.  We showcased the visual arts [the Art Show in February], nature as art [the Garden Tour in June], and will now feature performance art at our final event of this 100th year.  We are putting on a Hootenanny.  What’s that?  Per Google, a hootenanny is a longstanding country colloquialism meaning a “party,” and “a social gathering where folks singers entertain, often with the audience joining in” with dancing or even singing.

This Hootenanny will present a conglomeration, several forms of music and dance.  

The headliner will be resident Trent van Blaricom’s band, Moonshine Stills and Mash.  Trent, along with caller Rodney Sutton, will entertain us with a variety of music including Cajun, swing dance tunes, and songs fit for square dancing.  The role of a caller is to talk us through not only square dances, but also the 2-step, swing dancing, etc.  Don’t stay home if you don’t want to dance - spectators are welcome to enjoy the music as well.
