Our dance in December has been canceled due to so much other stuff going on. Our next dance will be January 17th (on the MLK holiday weekend).
Plan to come on down then to the Todd Mercantile and kick up your heels to the lively sounds of the Laurel Creek String Band at our monthly Community Dance! We’ll be doing Contra’s, Reels, Squares, Waltzes, plus a little bit of flat footing. No experience necessary, the caller runs through all the steps before each dance.
Bring the family too!
Cost is only $5.00 for those over 12
It sure is a “reel” good time!

We’ll be getting all warm and cozy down in Todd this weekend!


** Greetings from downtown Todd,
Hope everyone is staying warm this winter. I know things got a little frosty up here in Todd last week when the arctic blast came through – talk about a polar plunge! I heard of windchill temps around Todd as low as -35º and of -12º before wind chills – brrr! It is hard to imagine but spring is just around the corner.

Coming up next at the Todd Mercantile, we have our monthly Community Dance this Friday night, January 17th. If you’ve never been to one, these dances sure are a whole lotta fun for the entire family! This month Julie Gurganus and John Turner will be calling their usual great mix of dances for an exciting evening to tunes by the Laurel Creek String Band (and friends)! Circles, contras, squares and more! No experience necessary. The cost is only $5.00 for all those over 12 for the band and callers. Come on out and shake off those wintertime blues by kicking up your heels a little! It all starts at 7:30 and runs ’til 11pm.
A bit of news to share with you about two of Todd’s favorite and prominent citizens, Homer and Barbara Murdock are leaving us. As most of you know, Homer has been the Pastor at South Fork Baptist Church for the last 3 years. They are leaving at the end of this month for the coast to follow their hearts on a path that they feel God has chosen. Homer and Barbara have been an important part of our little community during their time here and I am sad to see them go. I know this will be an exciting new journey for them and so I am happy for them too. That reminds me, I need to get Barbara’s award winning apple pie recipe and her secrets for growing such a great garden before they go!

The store will be open this weekend. For hours this weekend and during these winter months check out the box on the left.

As always, we hope to see you soon in Todd!
