"That was the social get together for everybody, whether you danced or not. When there was a platform dance, or a house dance, or a barn dance, some of them.
"Before they started putting the hay in, if they had a real nice barn, they would have a barn dance up in the haymow before they started putting up hay. And those were wonderful because the whole neighborhood got together, just brought whatever you had and had lunch together. It was so much better than when people can't see each other and don't need each other. They needed each other, and they knew it. And I thought it was so much nicer at that time the way people got together."
