Polka Party This Sunday At Legion Club At 4 P.M.
Are you ready to party to polka?
Back by popular demand, the Dorchester American Legion this coming Sunday, May 22, will once again host a polka dance at the Legion Hall.
According to an e-mail sent to the Times, the Little Tavern Polka Band will show you how polka was meant to be played.
Sunday's event will kick off at 4 p.m. and continue until 8 p.m.
Only a $5 cover charge and the Dorchester Legion kitchen will be open.
Chicken baskets will be served, so plan to have dinner at the Legion.
Free-will donations will be accepted.
Proceeds will go to the Dorchester American Legion.
And here's a little trivia: 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.
