Dance Cancelled

For the sake of all persons in our community and not just our avid contra Jonesborough contra dancers, we have decided to suspend our dance program until such time that it would be safe and prudent to congregate again. We hope that all the measures that are being taken to minimize the impact of this disease will benefit all of us in the long run. Stay tuned for the joy that awaits us down the road. In the meantime, take good care of yourself and those around you. Thanks! The Board of the Historic Jonesborough Dance Society.
