"The Jet Steppers is a local square dance club currently dancing in Maple Valley. At present, we have approximately 80 members ranging in age from teen to senior (over 65) and in dance proficiency from brand new to long in experience. We dance together on the first and third Saturdays of every month at the Cedar Grange hall in Maple Valley.

The Club has been together since 1976 and actually began life as a part of the Boeing Co. Recreational Program, hence the name ‘Jet Steppers’.

If you have never square danced before, we can teach you how and we’d love to have the opportunity to get you started. For more information, call us at 206-824-7575."

Our next entertainer is the bluegrass quintet, Ryegrass:
"Ryegrass has been playing as a Bluegrass band in the Seattle area since the turn of the century. Individually they’ve been at it for decades. John Burke picked with core revivalist folkies of the ‘60’s and helped bring fiddlers Benny Thomasson and Mark O’Connor into the limelight. Steve Marx on banjo is a musical grandson of both Groucho himself and Gus Kahn of Tin Pan Alley fame. Jim Hanna and Paul Michel are old Ohio boys; Jim honed his guitar chops in and around L.A. in the ‘70’s; Paul haunted traditional masters in Appalachia, New England and County Clare. Chip is our heart and soul, with his steady bass and testy tolerance for talking instead of picking"

It's hard to believe the farmers' market season is already here! Exactly one year ago, we were showcasing a few of our environmentally friendly products as part of the 'Green Living Day' market theme.

You probably won't see us at the market this year, however, you can still visit the Maple Valley Farmers' Market every Saturday from 9 AM to 2 PM at the new Maple Valley Legacy Site to find locally-grown produce, a beautiful assortment of flowers, and more from local vendors!
