South Carroll: Winfield fire company hosting Socials Dance; Eldersburg church putting on carols concert

On Dec. 8, the Winfield Ladies Auxiliary will be hosting their traditional Sunday Socials Dance that they have now been hosting for 39 years.

The dances started in Westminster as an event for single people, and it was named “Singles Dance.” These dances were held twice a month in various locations in Carroll County.


Now they host the dances only at the Winfield Community Volunteer Fire Department and they named it “Sunday Socials Dance.” It is now open to everyone, not just singles.

The Winfield Ladies Auxiliary invites everyone in the community to attend because it is a great way to meet new people and get out on a Sunday evening.


Throughout the event, the attendees will be able to enjoy a live DJ and a hardwood dance floor. Also, they will be offering refreshments and the attendees will have a chance to win raffles.

The dance runs from 6:30 until 10 p.m. Admission to this event is $10.

All of the attendees have to be 21 years or older to enter.

Please note that the event takes place every second Sunday of each month at the fire hall, except for the months of May and July.

The Winfield fire company’s Social Hall is located at 1320 W. Old Liberty Road.
