It is always a bit forlorn counting down the last few weeks of summer but, of course, the beginning of fall also offers a number of things to which people can look forward.

For many people in the Smoky River region, one of those things to look forward too, is the beginning of the 2019 – 2020 season of Ol’ Tyme Family Nite,” which will happen at the Elks Hall in McLennan on Friday, September 13.

A dance and social gathering, family event, Ol’ Tyme Family Nite is now entering its thirteenth year, so the event is well established and extremely popular.

Following the summer break, many of the long-time, regular patrons who come from across the region to enjoy the evenings, will be happy to reconnect with friends and acquaintances and, once again, dance to the music of the Ol’ Tyme Family Nite Band.

FCSS Community Development Coordinator, Jean Moore-Lemoine and the members of the “Ol’ Tyme Family Nite Band” have been a mainstay of the event from the beginning.

Jean Moore-Lemoine is the founding organizer of the.

Ol’ Tyme Family Nite takes place the second and last Friday of the month from September to the end of May, with the last Friday of each month featuring a potluck supper.

Music and dancing usually get underway around 7pm and on the nights of the potluck supper; things begin a little earlier with people sitting down to eat around 6.30pm.
