50's Night 2016 was "Coolsville" at the Akron German Family Society!


Cool it Pops!
Hey Daddy-o.....
What's up Doc?
Righto.....
The Akron German Family Society or better known as "Coolsville" was the place to be for 50's Night 2016 on Saturday March 5th.
Greasers and their babes arrived in their hot rods,..... well mostly cars and pickups, but hot rods would have been cool! Jeans, t shirts, poodle skirts, and all around unreal hip cats were on cloud 9 dancing to the beat of musical guest Night School.
The Jitterbug, Swing, Lindy, Bop, and the Hand Jive were what the crazy hip kids were doin'.

It was no sweat for the kitchen crew to put out an awesome spread of "Bessie" roast beef sandwiches with horseradish sauce, fried chicken, "frog sticks" french fries, coleslaw, "Virtue" cherry  pie and "A-Pie  with a snowball" apple pie alamode.
The evening was made in the shade!
Looking through your peeps, you could even see Elvis across the dance floor!
Thank you to David Hall for another 
 "Eye ball" around through the cool pics below! One crazy Cat, David Hall, has photo quality pics in the links below.....
