Our Thanks to Past Sautee Contra Volunteers

A most grateful recognition is given to Peter Bull, who is known throughout the country, for his dedicated 18 years of booking our bands, callers and sound technician each month. His volunteer hours far exceed the 6 hours required on dance days, being responsible for opening and closing the gym; learning, installing and continually teaching a new sound system for all groups to use in the gym; housing and feeding the bands and callers; and essentially being the glue to all things CONTRA in Sautee.

We also thank Kathleen Kollock for heading up the committee for 3 years. Her steady clear thoughts and volunteering on all fronts has been a great asset to the CONTRA community. Also, Janine Marthai gladly served for 4 years as treasurer and all things with records and reports.

Sautee Community contra dance has been held monthly for the past 20 years in the historic gym of the Sautee Community Center. We are celebrating 20 years of continuous social and community involvement, though the pre-history of the dance has its roots in the 1970s. read more
