Looking for a unique way to give back to our nation’s veterans?  Check this out: This year, Big Sunday Weekend overlaps with Armed Forces Day, so Veterans Home of California – West Los Angeles is turning the main lobby of its facility into a dance hall complete with swing and Big Band-era tunes. The organization is in need of some lovely ladies to fill the dance cards of 165 male residents (40 residents served in WWII, 43 in Korean War, and 40 in Vietnam…that’s awesome, right?) who are all music-lovers!  Aside from serving as a great social event for residents, the live Big Band and dancers will help to re-create the historical hangout for GIs, just like in 1944, when soldiers took the bus in port to experience the opportunity to dance.  This will be a special and memorable event. (And men are needed to chat with the vets, and to help keep the party going in all kinds of ways, too!)
