Historic USO Dance Party

Hep Cats, Slick Chicks, and GIs, don your vintage togs and get ready to swing, sway and boogie to the big band sounds of the 1940s!

During WWII, Petaluma Woman’s Club (PWC) members were asked by the commander of Hamilton Field Air Force Base if they would host USO dances at the PWC clubhouse and provide their daughters as dance partners for some wholesome R&R for his troops. The PWC members were happy to comply. This inspired us to recreate this theme for our newest fundraiser.  1940s attire and WWII Uniforms are encouraged! Look for the vintage jeep marking the entrance to the party.

On the eve of the Veterans Day Parade in downtown Petaluma, the clubhouse will pulse to the rhythms of big band sounds.  Simple foods will harken back to the wartime atmosphere.  Enjoy an Aviator Cocktail in the Officers’ Lounge.
Not in a cocktail mood? Beer, wine or non-alcoholic beverages are served canteen style!

All proceeds go to the PWC Restoration Fund to maintain the historic clubhouse.
