BARRE – Kelly Dudley (left), president of the Barre Betterment Committee, and Cindy Van LieShout, the vice president, are pictured Friday on the dance floor under the pavilion at Barre Town Park.
The park is hosting a square dance from 6 to 9 p.m. today. Cabin Fever will be playing the music and Margaret Matthews will be the caller for the event, which has no admission charge. There will also be hot dogs, soda, basket raffles and 50/50 raffles.
“We’re just trying to hold some fun events for the community to get together,” Dudley said this morning. “We’ll have beautiful weather. Hopefully we can get the community together and have fun. If you don’t want to dance you can still come out and talk to people.”
The Betterment Committee officially formed this spring. It organized its first event last year with a tractor parade down Route 98 on Dec. 15.
The group’s volunteers have also planted flowers around the town’s signs.
