Hoedown for Hope Saturday

B y Jaime Thomas

Combining good, old-fashioned dancing and food with a good cause, the second annual Harvest Hoedown for Hope will be held this Saturday, Sept. 28.

The Haynes House of Hope, a comfort care home for the terminally ill, will present the fall-themed happening from 4 to 10 p.m.

“It’s for a good cause. It’s something different; it’s something fun,” said organizer Peter O’Brien.

The dance takes place in the barn at Hogan Hill in Hampton. O’Brien said the barn was built a few years ago and never housed animals.

“It’s a beautiful barn, and it has a beautiful view overlooking the hills of Hampton. It has three copper copulas,” he said.

Throughout the afternoon, Ole Time Country will provide music and square dancing in the barn.

“Last year it was different for some people because they didn’t know how to square dance. Many people learned how to square dance,” O’Brien said.

In the evening, Sweetwater will provide classic country-rock tunes for more entertainment.

But the hoedown features more than dancing. During the day until dusk, John Shaw and his Clydesdales will offer free wagon hayrides.

Food will be a sight to see as well—the Burch Family Farm will do up a pig roast with all the normal sides, such as beans and salads. Beer and wine will be available, and a representative from Adirondack Vineyard, out of Glens Falls, will offer wine tastings.

This is one of the Haynes House’s two biggest fundraisers of the year, and officials are especially grateful to Tina from AJ’s Restaurant for her help in preparing the hoedown.

Last year’s event was under the rain and in a tent, but O’Brien said there was still a decent turnout. There is room for at least 125 people to attend the event, and he’s hoping there will be a full group.

Tickets, which are available at Scotties, are $35 for adults, $25 for seniors and students, and children under six are free. They can also be reserved by calling 642-8155. For more information, call Peter O’Brien at 518-321-9640.

The Barn at Hogan’s Hill is located at 2077 Route 22A.
