A Good Ol' Country Hoedown

In Woodcroft Community

July 21, 2012 (2pm – Midnight)


Yee Haw!   Despite the threatening weather forecast, the sun came out along with a great crowd.


Folks had an opportunity to catch up with old friends and neighbours; there was plenty of popcorn, cotton candy and refreshments for all; and the petting zoo, fishing hole, games and activities were popular attractions for the young as well as the young-at-heart.   Several very talented young singers from Pure Artists Inc.  performed through the afternoon, demonstrating once again that Edmonton's got talent to spare. 


Contratulations to the winners of the baking contest.  There are some mighty good cooks out there. 


After a very satisfying dinner spread, our lively crowd spent a pre-dance hour brushing up on their line dancing with instruction provided by Kerri Orthner as well as two step and fox trot techniques courtesy of lessons provided by Cindy Webber.  Then folks danced their boots off to the crowd pleasing band "Jukebox Leigh". 


And where would we be without our fantastic volunteers!  Thank-you once again.  We could not have pulled off this great event without the tireless contribution of our volunteers.  Along with all of the work that was contributed, our volunteers had a whole lot of fun working together.
