Annual Reunion Folkdance Party

Every spring, usually the last weekend in April, the Hoolyehs hold a big party at the Mary’s River  Grange in Philomath. We dance from 7 pm til midnight. The cost is about $10 with all proceeds going to the McCauley/Rice scholarship fund that helps send a folkdancer to a summer camp to learn new dances and return home to teach us what they learned.
