FSGW Wednesday English Country Dances
Admission price increase starting August 2014
Starting August 1, admission to the weekly dance will be $10 for members, $12 for non-members, and $5 for students. This increase is due to a rise in hall rental cost, an increase in musician and caller pay, and to give a free admission to the week's snack provider.
