Last week we showcased a poem and a recent addition to our collections, the Cora Baumann collection.  See last week's post here -

Flashback Friday Encore: Town of Lemoyne Sacrificed for Lake McConaughy, 1941

This is another gem from that collection. Paying courtesy to service men from the Lemoyne community, members of the LeGalla club entertained at a dancing party at the Crystal Pavilion in Ogallala, Nebraska, on Saturday, December 1, 1945. Seventeen service men, their friends and relatives enjoyed a most pleasant evening at the Pavilion.
