Festive Franco music & dance event at Callahan Hall

The Maine Folque Co-op invited "tout le monde" to a Franco-themed “Spring Fling” event in Callahan Hall at the Lewiston Public Library on Saturday, May 14, 2016. Designed to be a family affair fashioned after the old-time Franco kitchen parties, the Fling featured an afternoon of dancing and singing as well as vintage French Canadian “jigs-&-reels” music. To keep it affordable for all, admission was just $3 for adults, and $1 for youngsters – including any full-time students up to age 22.
