Mixer will kick off Airfest ’98

Sally J. Taylor

As a kick-off for the Lake Tahoe Airport Airfest ’98, the South Lake Tahoe Chamber of Commerce will celebrate the 1940s with a 1990s twist during a USO-themed business mixer.

The mixer is scheduled Friday, Aug. 21 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Tailspin Restaurant at the airport.

The USO, formally known as the United Services Organization, earned a special place in the hearts of service men, particularly during World War II, for its efforts to bring light-hearted entertainment to military bases worldwide.

To celebrate, the flight crews will wear their flight jackets and chamber members, staff and anyone else who wants to join in are encouraged to wear 1940s costumes.

Disc jockeys will dust off the best of 1940s music. As fund-raisers, participants can purchase a dance from the hosts for a $1-a-dance – a 1990s inflation adjustment from the USOs traditional dime-a-dance.

Chamber members can also buy their way out of Karaoke challenges, featuring 1940s tunes such as “Boogie-Woogie Bugle Boy,” or “I Will be Seeing You.”

Business mixers are an opportunity for members of the business community to network and pass out business cards while having fun, too.

For more information, call the chamber office at (530) 541-5255.
