Folk dances liked by all (Fleming High News)

The gym looked like a barn with leaves and hay scattered all over the floor. There were trees placed around the gym, with love seats under them. The decorations were just perfect for folk dancing. The Journalism Class worked hard in making this party a big success and it was. Everyone took part in the dancing and really seemed to have the time of their lives.
