Our national conferences always include sessions, workshops and general fellowship, but this year we are adding great evening entertainment as well. On Friday evening, Oct. 6, we will host a hootenanny featuring several groups, including Servas songwriter and musician Dave Lippman, and folksingers Little Sparrow with Carol Smith on guitar and Aldo Troiani on mandolin and guitar. On Saturday, Oct. 7, we are hoping for a contra dance featuring a caller and musicians from the Hudson Valley (pending costs). An alternative might be a blues and rock-n-roll jam (let us know if you might like to perform (email firstname.lastname@example.org).
Here is a link to an article from last month's Open Doors about the conference venue Frost Valley YMCA Camp in Claryville, NY, about 2 ½ hours northwest of New York City.
