• Farm Life: Barn Dances, 1951, Millbrook, Springfield, Manitoba, Canada. 1593 Most of the Millbrook young people of the fifties will remember the barn dances held in Glen Colbert's new barn of 1951 on the centre line near Salter's homestead. Those were the years when good times were enjoyed by young people pooling their talents and resources. More dances were held in the loft of the barn, often with cattle below. As many as two hundred people attended. Ladies brought cake and sandwiches. Glen and Mary provided the coffee. Admission was free, though they did take a collection to pay for the insurance on the building. If there was a little over, it went to the orchestra which was composed of local people who played good country music. Some were: Tom Amms, Mike Honduburra, Mike Ruffles, Arsene Ballegeer, and Ron Fetterly. Local boys Gilbert Irwin and Stanley McIvor were square dance callers and announcers. Waltzes, polkas, one steps, two steps and other dances were all enjoyed.
