What do you get when six dancers are joined by six fourth-graders, who are then joined by 12 of their classmates and finally up to 24 additional students? Two longwise sets of ladies and gentlemen enjoying a colonial dance! As part of their Colonial Day festivities, four classes of Grafton Village Elementary School students donned 18th century costumes, including gowns, aprons, caps, waistcoats and tricorn hats, and learned "The Morning Gazette."
Pictured (L to R): Naomi McPherson, Greg Brunacci, Bettie Brezee, Catherine Bell, Kitty Taylor, Sharon Brunacci and Josephine Buchanan.
