Luskville hosts seniors’ square dancing social

A seniors’ dance was held Saturday night at the Luskville Community Centre, encouraging partygoers to bring their own booze and be ready to scuff up the dance floor. Billed as a traditional square dance, the Brysonnaires entertained the crowd, even starting a half hour early to accommodate the eager group.

Seniors packed up their coolers and plated a favourite potluck contribution when they came out en masse for a square dance Saturday night at the Luskville Community Centre.
Organized as a Canada 150 event and featuring live music by the Brysonnaires, over 125 people came out to the free event, with many showing up an hour ahead of schedule. The dance also coincided nicely with International Seniors Day, marking another reason to celebrate.
“The feedback from locals was that they wanted a community get together,” said Nicole Touchette, one of the evening’s organizers. “Being [Canada’s] 150th anniversary, we decided we’ll have a traditional dance.”
