DOVER – The Kent Conservation District invites you to join them for a rompin’ stompin’ good time from 6 to 11 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14, for its 17th Annual Barn Dance fundraiser to be held at the Harrington Fire Company, 20 Clark Street, Harrington, DE 19952. The event features a down-home meal including fried chicken, beef and dumplings, live and silent benefit auctions, and dancing to music provided by JKA Entertainment.

Be prepared to kick up your heels for a night of FUNdraising, with tickets on sale for $20 per person or $35 per couple. Tickets for children 12 years and under are $10 each, while children under two are admitted free. Reserved tables with seating for eight are available for $150, one name – one check.

Funds raised through the Barn Dance support the Delaware Envirothon, a competitive, problem-solving, natural resource challenge for high school students. The goals of the Delaware Envirothon are to test the environmental knowledge of high school students and to cultivate within the students a desire to learn more about the natural world. The students are tested on the following topics: air quality, soils/land use, aquatic ecology, forestry, wildlife and a current environmental issue.

Experience gained through the competition will prepare individual students and teams to make sound conservation decisions. The 2016 Delaware Envirothon champions from the Charter School of Wilmington recently returned from Ontario, Canada, where they competed in the NCF Envirothon with other students from across the U.S. and Canada. They returned with an 18th place finish out of 52 competing teams.

A limited number of tickets to the Barn Dance are available and can be purchased by mail or in person at the Kent Conservation District office at 800 Bay Road, Suite 2, Dover, DE 19901. Tickets sell quickly, so those who want to attend are encouraged not to wait.

For more information, please call the Kent Conservation District at 302-741-2600 ext. 3.
