VirginiaWinnLocal Hero: Virginia Winn

Virginia Winn is the heart of the Contra dancing community in Columbia, SC. She currently serves as a Director and Treasurer for ContraCola (Columbia Traditional Music and Dance). Among the many things Virginia does we can count setting up the dance hall and tearing things down at the end of each dance, collecting money, publishing a newsletter, helping with demo dances, and the list goes on and on.

At every dance, at every event, through every chore, Virginia smiles and spreads joy to all she comes in contact with. And, to top things off, she is a great dancer too!
