La Côte holds second Barn dance

Country music, line dancing and Western gear was in vogue recently when La Côte Church held its second Barn Dance.

We wanted to build our community and welcome people beyond our regular church attenders to enjoy time together.

Fortunately, the event took place in an appropriately decorated Catholic church hall in Nyon on Lake Geneva rather than a drafty barn. The music, food and congenial atmosphere encouraged almost all of the 120+ would-be westerners onto the dancefloor. With our very own caller to guide our steps and the accompaniment of our own country singer backed by assorted musicians, we had a hand-clapping foot-stomping time. Large quantities of chili and rice, washed down by French beer and Swiss wine, provided the sustenance we needed to get through the evening.
