Ferry turnaround contradance
Haines contradancers have put together a special event this Sunday for Juneau dancers: a ferry turnaround contradance.
The ferry leaves Juneau at 7 a.m. Sunday. Haines dancers will provide transportation from the Haines ferry terminal into town, and will serve a potluck dinner before the afternoon dance. The ferry leaves Haines about 5 p.m. after the dance and returns to Juneau Sunday about 9 p.m.
One of the organizers, Sally Donaldson, said the Juneau and Haines dance groups organized a similar event last spring. Forty people signed up, but a last-minute ferry problem caused the run to be canceled.
The only charge is the ferry ticket. Musicians and callers are invited to perform, and musician Len Feldman from Haines will help organize. Lis Saya of Juneau is also organizing music, and can be contacted at 780-4213. More information on the contradance schedule and events can be found at www.ptialaska.net/ddonalds.
