‘Barn’ dance set for Friday evening

An old-fashioned “barn” dance will be fro 7 to 10 p.m. Friday at the Jasper County Community Center.

There will be live music and live calling. Admission is $5, with a family maximum of $20 (or pay what you can — no one will be turned away). All dances are taught, no knowledge or experience is necessary, and there is no need to bring a partner.
