With Juanita Mills-Persely and Navy veteran John Culp at the helm, the “Big Band Dance Honoring Our Veterans” will sail into the Port Clinton High School Cafeteria on Sunday, Nov. 14 from 2-5 p.m. for an afternoon of good food, fun, camaraderie and patriotism.
“We’re back!” Is the battle cry, said Mills-Persley, the co-chair with Culp. In fact, they’re the whole Big Band Dance Committee, and will feature the 16-piece “Night Sessions Big Band” playing World War II era big band tunes.
Tickets are $10, and available at Mary’s Blossom Shoppe in Port Clinton. Reservations can also be made with Mills-Persey (419-341-1080) until Sunday morning.
Dress is “nice casual,” or “dress for the occasion.” Veterans apparel, from military uniforms to t-shirts, caps, and jackets reflecting a branch of the service or era, are welcome.
Hors d’ouvres and refreshments will be served.
There will be a “Missing Man Table” to remember the veterans who have died in recent years.
