Do you recall the days of entering a gymnasium in your socks? Dancing the Hand Jive, Mashed Potato and the Stroll? Do you remember the anxious feeling of waiting for that hip cat to ask you to dance or finding the courage to ask that pretty chick to Rock ‘n’ Roll? If so, please join us in celebrating a time when sock hops were the place teens went to dance the night away.

For one night only, the museum will be transformed into a dance hall reminiscent of the old dances that were held at the YMCA, the Armory and area school gymnasiums. Live music from the era will be performed by Sheboygan’s own Eldorados, a band that was famous for playing many dances back then and are still performing today. Come enjoy the hip sounds of the late 1950’s and early 1960’s with a band that has grown up playing those great songs. They’ll razz your berries!

There will be several photos and newspaper ads on display to spark those special memories. Think you can name the places that hosted teen dances around the county? Come see if your memory serves you well. If not, museum staff will be on hand to clue you in.

Hors oeuvres will be offered and beer and wine will be available for purchase. The museum, through the graciousness of several local businesses, will be holding a silent auction. Restaurant deals, items from retailers and sporting teams will be available to bid on. All proceeds will go to the Historical Society Museum.

So chicks, put on your saddle shoes and poodle skirt. You guys, put on your letter sweater and loafers, or leather jacket and blue jeans. Make sure that duck tail or Jelly Roll is set with just the right amount of grease and scream down to the museum to see what’s buzzin’ cuzzin’. Get a little kookie while getting your kicks making the scene. Hope to see at the museum. Later, gator.

July’s “Third Saturdays” program starts at 5 p.m. and ends at 10 p.m. Guests are welcome any time throughout the evening. Hors d’oeuvres will be available. The admission is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors and active military. Members and their guests are free. This is a 21+ event.

The event is sponsored in part by H. C. Denison, Kohler Foundation Inc, Sargento Foods Inc, Windsor Family Foundation, Sheboygan Press, and Great Lakes Blue Printers.
