Letters: Hard Times were good times

Hard Times dance is a welcome tradition in Sooke which should be continued

The Hard Times dance last weekend was quite a lot off fun. How many communities can fill a large hall with well over 300 (maybe 400) people ranging from 19 to 60 plus with everybody enjoying themselves and dancing.? Running into old friends seemed to be the norm.

The Lions kept everything under control and worked hard all night keeping things running smooth. The wieners and beans were my favorite. I had to have a couple of helpings.

I look forward to the Hard Times Dance in the years to come. I only hope it doesn’t go the same route as other old traditions such as All Sooke Day.

A good time was had by all.
