It is with regret that we will be presenting a motion that Tthe Barn Dance Historical Society be disbanded as of the next Annual General Meeting (likely in April 2024).
However, at this year's Jamboree we had the opportunity to introduce more young talent.

Our museum is now closed, and many of the artifacts have been returned.
