Countdown to the Homestead Barn Dance

Well friends, it is almost upon us.  October 11th that is, which is known around ThorpeWood as Barn Dance day!  We are so excited to welcome you all to our beautifully decorated Homestead Bank Barn to dance the night away and enjoy the fellowship of time spent with members of your community.Barn Before Dance

In addition to being a fundraiser for ThorpeWood – those $20 tickets, $10 for people under 15, help us to provide our wonderful property and programs, such as our Equine Assisted Learning, to nonprofits and the members they serve – events such as this Barn Dance also help to bring our community together for an evening of fun.  Life can move at such a brisk pace these days, and chances to gather together as a community are few and far between.  Here at ThorpeWood, we are committed not only to serving our community, but to being an active part in it as well.

When you come on out to ThorpeWood on the evening of the 11th, you will surround yourself with members of your community, and be entertained by the local Bluegrass sound of The Speakeasy Boys.  It promises to be an evening to remember!

Your tickets get you admission to the event – the dance will be held in our Homestead Bank Barn.  ThorpeWood’s Homestead Bank Barn is easy to find.  Follow the directions on ThorpeWood’s website and choose the destination Homestead.  We will have signs further directing you to parking near the barn.  The dance will go from 7:30 to 10:30.  Remember there will be a dance caller, so you don’t Speakeasyhave to worry about knowing the steps!  All you will need to do is follow directions and enjoy moving your feet.  Light snacks and hot cider will also be provided, and you can feel free to BYOB.

To purchase tickets, you can contact Beryl at 301-271-2823, ext.#204, or by email at [email protected].  OR if you don’t need conversation and are simply ready to send in your payment, please mail your payment to: ThorpeWood, Attn: Beryl Chafin, 12805-A Mink Farm Road, Thurmont, MD 21788.  OR if you are still undecided and are waiting for a better offer (which I don’t think there is) and want to know if you can wait some more and still purchase tickets at the door …the answer is YES you can.  However, the down-side to waiting is that the tickets at the door will be $5 more – the reason being is that it is most useful for event planning to know in advance approximately how many folks will attend an event.  So we give you the cheaper ticket as an incentive to commit sooner and help us in our planning.

We are looking forward to a fun night with you – our friends – so, please plan to come on out and share in a memorable evening on the mountain!  A good time can be guaranteed ONLY if you, your family and friends come!!
