First Friday Dance, April 4

St. Urho party/dance: The celebration will begin at 7:30 p.m., with Katrilli teaching some fun Finnish mixers, including the grape-stomping dance. Along with the
Scandinavian dances, Folk Voice Band will entertain throughout the night with some tangos, swings, and even some tunes from south of the Midnight Sun. Of course, what would the gathering be without Pat McMonagle leading us through the Grasshopper Humppa? There will be many mixers and lots of opportunities to dance, so come with or without a partner. Since this is a fun evening, it would be a very good time to introduce new people to Skandia.

During intermission, Harvey Niebulski and Marianne Tatom will provide infectious music with a klezmer tang. Lots of goodies will be offered for happy munching, and then it will be time for the often-sought-after unwanted door prizes. It is important to be properly attired for this auspicious event, so please wear St. Urho colors of green and purple. For further information on saintly and non-saintly issues, please contact JoAnne Rudo at (206) 329-1443.
