On February 9th we welcomed the great students, from West Meadow School in Claresholm and the Owen Sound School in Ontario, to our first student sleepover program of 2009. They were hungry and ready to be taught some history on Barn Dancing and some new dance steps. So we fed them some great Alberta roast beef with all the fixings. Then they were informed on the history of our barn and the history of barn dancing on the prairies. After the history lesson it was time to head upstairs. Our dance instructor Ron Reimann put them through the paces and had them looking pretty good by the time the dance was done. We then had a snack before rolling out the beds and tucking everyone in for the night. In the morning it was time for our Cowboy Pancake Breakfast and goodbyes as the students packed their bus and headed off into the distance.
Over 60 students attended and all of us here at the Barn were very impressed with the great attitudes and friendliness of these great students.
We would like to thank all the teachers and adults who made the trip with them for all of there help. Special thanks to Jo Anna Sutter and Kevin Bechlamp.
