World War II swing dance at Sunnybrook April 13

World War II swing dance at Sunnybrook April 13



A swing dance in honor of World War II veterans returns to the Sunnybrook Ballroom, 50 Sunnybrook Rd., Pottstown, on Friday, April 13, from 8 to 11 p.m.

Doors open at 7 p.m. The Swing Fever Dance Band, an 18-piece orchestra, will perform its USO Canteen Show in World War II uniform.

The band will play selections from Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller and the Dorsey Brothers - the Big Band sounds of the 1940s.

Those who go will be greeted by Uncle Sam and Rosie the riveter. Each participant will receive a ration book for soda, chips and pretzels at the mess tent. A cash bar will be available at the Officers’ Club. There will be presentation of colors by the Pottstown High School Junior ROTC.  K rations will be served at intermission.

The dance is sponsored by the Phillies Fire Company and the Pottstown Mercury. Tickets are $24 per person. Proceeds benefit World War II vets, and men and women now serving in the military.

Military or 1940s dress is suggested.

For information, contact Dance Chairman Bill Krause at 610-323-2229.
