Silent Auction - Funds Will Support Our Scholarship for a CDSS' Camp!
Please consider bringing an item or two for the silent auction. The bidding is fun! Maybe there's a service or product you could donate. Or dance clothes! Plants! Produce! Contra CDs! Books! Pottery! So far there's a lovely handmade quilt from by Jo Mortland! Thank you for your help!

Contact Laurie P, Housing Coordinator, at LGFestHousing@email.com if you have extra couch or bed space for out of town dancers, or if you need a place to stay during the dance weekend! Be sure to give her your email and phone.

Thank you in advance -- it's very helpful if dancers can bring sweet or salty snacks to share, including cut-up fruit and veges. Also - if you're bringing gluten or dairy free, please label it as such, and thank you!
