Karl’s Kids will host a dance party as its first Lincoln County fundraiser on Friday, July 26 at the Lakeside Barn in Duck Puddle Campground in Nobleboro.
Local dance instructor Steve Hand will teach a brief beginner West Coast Swing dance lesson and provide a demonstration of this popular, fun style of dance. A variety of dance music will follow and everyone is encouraged to dance the night away at this beautiful venue.
The lesson will begin at 7:30 p.m. and the party will last until 10:30 p.m. The fundraiser is open to all. A $10 donation will be collected at the door. It is BYOB and popcorn will be provided. Pizza, snacks, and beverages are available for purchase at the campground store.
