Please join us this weekend! We will be having an outing after to keep the SPIRIT OF ’45 ALIVE!

RSVP NOW!

QM-horizlogo-2012

The 2015 Spirit of ’45 event will not feature a USO dance this year. This event is not cancelled, but SwingDance.LA carried forth last year’s event schedule to their site, no doubt with the best of intentions. We regret any disappointment, but hope to bring it back in later years’ events.

Brian says:

Hi Randy,

Thanks for the correction!

Debbie Alva says:

Hi Debbie,

Sorry about that. It’s not having a dance this year.
