1942-Style Hangar Dance – Congratulations Mike & Pam! Our group of Military Collector friends in the area have always talked about hosting a 1942-style Hangar Dance. With Mike & Pam’s wedding, we finally had a good reason. The happy couple. In a matter of days, Don & Jackie’s pole barn was transformed into the Wicklund Army Airfield. Men in uniform helped direct parking. Decor included camo netting, parachutes, a paratrooper manakin and many military collectibles including a 1942 calendar on the wall. Of course there was a place for signing the guest book and a field kitchen utensil container as a card holder. The look was made complete with twinkle lights and a disco ball. That is my buddy Al looking quite dapper in his Hawaiian flamingo shirt. Pam & Mike hired a Big Band and some Swing dancers. Both were a big hit. The dancers gave swing lessons and encouraged guests to get out and dance. And when the band took a break they entertained the crowd with some high energy dance routines. For the bar, what else but an old DUKW!Complete with a barrail, ramp and canopy, it was stocked well and also a big hit. Yes, that is me in the white Tee shirt. I opened it and closed it. The dancers had a good time also. Friends in uniform ready to toast the married couple. Much happiness to you both!
