Disco dance raises money for Common Fence Community Hall


PORTSMOUTH — There were plenty of platform shoes, sequins, loud shirts and bell bottoms to be seen Friday night at the Common Fence Point Improvement Association’s “Disco Throwback Bash.”

A portion of the proceeds from the event benefited renovations at the community hall, where the dance was held.
