Nordell and Davis see this gathering as an opportunity to celebrate Maine agriculture. “One of the beautiful things about the farming community here is the lack of a generation gap,” says Nordell. “The farmers who started in the ‘70s picked up the reins from the older, rural community, and now young farmers are learning a tremendous amount from those farmers. Square dancing is a piece of our national rural culture that our generation can reclaim and revitalize — it’s fun, it’s silly, and it reflects where we’ve been.” For more information, visit www.MOFGA.org.
