Barn Dance this Saturday
Placeholder Image

Wee Books is hosting fundraiser this weekend that is sure to have attendees stompin' their boots and spinnin' their partners round and round.

The Wee Books Barn Dance is officially here and promises fun for the whole family at a hoe-down on Kinsey Family Farm in Dawsonville.

The dance starts Saturday at 6:30 p.m. and continues until 11 p.m.

Tickets for the dance are $36 for adults, $10 for kids aged 6-12 and free for kids five and under.

Tickets cover the price of admission, a Jim ‘N Nicks BBQ dinner, two drinks, Western style dancing with instruction and special games for kids assisted by the Dawson County High School Interact Club.

Wee Books provides free books each month for children in Dawson County from birth through the start of kindergarten.

Proceeds from the barn dance will help Wee Books continue to spread the joys of childhood literacy.

Wee Books President Sue Poynter said the event is especially important this year after the group had to cancel it's Leap for Literacy event due to low lake levels.

Poynter said ticket sales have been great, but that sponsors from the community are always needed to help long-term. The group saw a large signup attending the county's kindergarten round-up and Easter egg hunt.

"We now have over 850 children enrolled in our program, which is the largest number we've ever had," Poynter said. "Each month the organization pays approximately $3 a book per child, so we're looking at a much larger monthly support than needed in the past."

Kinsey Family Farm is located at 7170 Jot Em Down Road in Dawsonville.
