“The dances stopped because people were just too busy,’ said Sunshine Sally to herself. “I think a late autumn dance is just what we need though.”

Sunshine Sally talked to Roy, the owner of the dance hall. He agreed that a late autumn dance would be wonderful.

“I think this is just what the town needs,” said Roy.

Roy told Sunshine Sally that if she cleaned the place up, he would pitch in and loan the dance hall to her for free. He was also a singer so, he would provide the entertainment.

Sunshine Sally cleaned the dance hall from top to bottom the next day. She also made some flyers and handed them out. The local bakery offered to supply snacks for the dance, free of charge.
