The Beaufort County Open Land Trust held an old-fashioned barn dance last Friday at the Widgeon Point Preserve. Guests enjoyed a barbecue dinner catered by Jimmy Fitts and a live auction of a classic painting by Bill Mead to benefit the Open Land Trust. The thrill of the evening was the actual barn dance, called by Tommy Bledsoe. Dancers do-si-doed to the Virginia Reel and more as the Salt Marsh Stompers fiddled and strummed their popular tunes. The barn at Widgeon Point is now open for party rental reservations and is a great venue for either a casual or formal event. Call the Open Land Trust today for more information at (843) 521-2175.
