In Their 50th Year!


The local Appalachian folk dancers are celebrating their 50th anniversary by gathering on April 22 at 5:30 p.m. for dinner, reminiscing, and dancing.  Music will be provided by Uncle Shuffelo and His Haint Hollow Hootenanny and the public is invited.  Reservations can be made by contacting Jane Elrod at mjaneelrod@gmail.com (There will be limited seating.).  On facebook, see the page entitled, "Official 50th RCSD/CCC Reunion" ( which includes the Kittrell 4-H Square Dancers as well), maintained by Margie Smith.  Others on the committee planning the event include Becky Coulter, Sandra Haynes Maxwell, Donna Davis, Leslie Linebaugh, and Lynne Lee.  The location will be at the home of the Kittrell Volunteer Fire Department, on the old Kittrell School campus where the troupe was organized as a Share the Fun 4-H activity in 1967. Steve Cates, the 4-H Leader at that time and a teacher at the school, is still the director.
