GRIFFIN - The fifth annual “A Taste of Two Counties” library benefit dance will be held Saturday, Jan. 26, at the Kiwanis Event Center (1025 S. Hill St.) in Griffin. Co-sponsored by the Friends group of the J. Joel Edwards Public Library, the dance will feature the big band sounds of the 17-piece Night Train Swing Band and the smooth vocals of frontman, Kevin Arney.

A complimentary dance lesson in basic East Coast swing will kick off the program at 7:00, followed by live band music for waltz, fox trot, rumba, tango, swing, and more. At least six local restaurants will feature their favorite dishes, including Pike County’s Concord Café, the Oink Joint, and Barnstormer’s Grill.

“The library dances are supposed to be one of the hottest events of the year and I’m really excited to get to participate this year,” said library assistant Alyssa Williams.

Profits from the dance are used to help the library provide continuing programs, materials, and events for children, teens, and adults.

Tickets for the benefit dance are only $20, student tickets $10, and can be purchased at Margo’s Restaurant (1136 Taylor Street, Griffin), A Novel Experience (426 Thomaston Street, Zebulon), and the J. Joel Edwards Public Library.

Tickets are also available online at www.friendsofthejjoeledwardspubliclibrary.com.

For more information, contact the library at 770-567-2014 or Bobby Bunn at 770-584-3094.
