Mardi Sharon, in September no less!

 ~for the last number of years, there have been some pretty extraordinary fundraisers held at the Sharon School that have been benefit of The Sharon Volunteer Fire Company. A large number of folks start the planning more than a year in advance. The transformation of some areas of the center school have been very remarkable. This year was a Mardi Gras theme...

Attendees (a couple hundred I bet) enter through the old front door and proceed downstairs to the cafeteria. The cafeteria is nicely theme decorated with tables spread around with all kinds of nibbles which have been contributed.

 Outside in the playground area, a large tent has been set up with tables and chairs and tall bar tables to stand at, where one gets to visit with friends and enjoy some refreshments. At 8 pm, upstairs in the gym, which shows no semblance of being a gym, there is a whole themed dance floor, with a band for the evenings dancing.

 The band played till 11:30 I think (I left shortly after 11, and they were still playing). It was a real nice evening, shared with lots of townsfolk , all for a great cause.  Not sure if and when the next will be, but if they do one, I highly recommend for you to come out and enjoy. If dancing is not your thing, many come for the just the food and visiting, and head home when they're ready.

One of the attendees in the spirit!
