The 1940’s was arguably the most important and most influential decade of the 20th century. A local civic organization honored the men and women who fought in the United States Military during this time, while highlighting the spirit, technology, and style of the 1940’s. The Citizens for a Better Williams hosted its annual fundraising dinner on Saturday, October 10, 2015 at the Tuscan Lodge in Downtown Williams.
“It was a successful evening,” said Citizens for a Better Williams Board President, Pat Ash, “the food was wonderful, the entertainment was outstanding – everyone appeared to have a great time.”
Dinner was prepared by Rocco’s Bar & Grill and served by the Williams High School Volleyball and Basketball team. Silent and live auction items were were awarded to lucky bidders and the evening concluded with a live performance by ‘Sister Swing”.
Sister Swing is a trio of vocalists dedicated to fun and frivolity while preserving the vintage jazz sounds of the girl groups of the 1930s and 1940s.
