MAYPOLE DANCE

Monday, May 7, 2012

Dating back to the Roman Empire, the traditional Maypole Dance on May 1 has faded in popularity over the years. One local family, Ginney Leavitt and her daughters, Jessia Atwater and Sara Seifert, of Pierce City, have celebrated the tradition for 20 years, repeating the event last week at the family home. "It was the movie 'Maytide' and the book, 'Jack and Jill' that inspired me," said Jessica. "It was all about the movie for me," said Sara. [Times Photo]
