Barn Dance raises the roof for Reeves

Almost 50 folks showed on Saturday, April 3, at Chilhowee View Community Center to support Blount County Commissioner Wendy Pitts Reeves. Supporters enjoyed an old-fashion barn dance, which was a fundraiser for Pitts Reeves, who is running for re-election for Blount County Commission, District IV, Seat C.

In a telephone interview, Pitts Reeves said, “It was great. We had a blast. You can’t come to something like that and not have fun and have a sense of humor.”

Folks took to the floor for the old fashioned barn dance. “We had everyone from 6-year-olds to 60-year-olds doing everything from country dancing to square dancing. You could feel a real sense of community,” Pitts Reeves said.

There was plenty of food along with a cakewalk, a live band headed by Danny Gammon and square dance caller Tim Klein who added to the fun of the evening by instructing folks in how to square dance.

Pitts Reeves, a Democrat, is unopposed in the primary and will be challenged in the August general election by the winner of the Republican primary between Jerome Moon and Billy Gribble.
