Celebrate Local Achievers…in 1940’s style!!

Please see our History Makers page for more detailed event info!

Dance, dine, celebrate — as you’re transported back to the 1940’s at the USO-style History Makers. Immerse yourself in this era of history while recognizing the accomplishments of those who have made a significant contribution to Rock County.

You’ll feel like it’s the 1940’s when you enter The Armory, complete with USO-themed décor and live, big band music. Plus, mix with the USO re-enactment group WW2 Stateside, as they mingle all night long. 1940’s clothing welcome!
