Polka Party Saturday Night! Be There.
Are you ready to party? To polka?
The Dorchester American Legion will host a polka dance featuring Lester’s Polka Band at 6 p.m. tomorrow night (Saturday) at the Legion Hall.
Donations will be accepted, and chicken or hamburger baskets will be available for sale.
Proceeds will go to American Legion community projects. So give generously!
And here's a little trivia for some of you with more curious minds: Polka originated as a Czech peasant dance. Historic folklore has it that a peasant girl named Anna Slezak invented the steps one day for her own amusement. The word “pulka” is derived from the Czech phrase for “half-step,” which refers to the dance pattern of lightly stepping from one foot to the other.
