Join the Guild for Lunch and Square Dancing

The Shenandoah Valley Music Festival Guild continues its 25th Anniversary celebration with a Square Dance demonstration on Thursday, Sept. 21, at Cave Ridge Vineyard in Mt. Jackson. Arrive at 11:30 am for a glass of wine and conversation, and enjoy the beautiful view! Lunch will be served at 12:15 pm. Cost is $21. Visitors are cordially invited.

Chef Victorio, owner/chef of the family operated Castiglia’s of Winchester, has prepared an Italian buffet of Chicken Cacciatore, Grilled Penne Pasta with Olive Oil and Garlic, a salad of fresh cut greens and assorted dressings, house-made rolls and beverages. The special dessert selection will be the Chef’s Choice of Delicacies.

The entertainment will be provided by the Plains Promenaders Square Dance Club of Timberville. Square Dancing dates from 16th century England, arriving in North America with the European migration. Western American Square Dance is probably the best known. The Plains Club was formed 43 years ago at the Plains Elementary School in Timberville, where they meet for instructional workshops. Larry Winegard, instructor/caller said that all you need to square dance is the ability to walk and count to four.

The club’s main activity is Square and Line Dancing. However, the club’s goal is fellowship. “It’s OK to be a good dancer, but it’s wonderful to have good friends.” Square Dancing is the Virginia state dance, and the club’s motto is “Friendship set to Music.” Dust off your Do Sa Does for a fun afternoon of dance demonstration!

Cave Ridge Vineyard is located at 1480 Conicville Road in the Conicville section of Shenandoah County. The luncheon will be held on the second floor of the vineyard, which is handicapped accessible by ramp behind the building.
