Contra Dance continues as community get-together

Scott Umphrey, far left, calls for participants to perform an allemande, a dance step, during the annual Contra Dance on Jan. 26 at the Culp Building, 302 N. Main St. Anne Mollinson, an event founder, said the Contra Dance event has been hosted for at least 10 years. The band, the School House Pickers, is composed entirely of acoustic instruments, practices weekly at the Mary M Smiser Heritage Library, adjacent to the Culp Building.
