A Rock N' Roll Sock Hop!

Go back to the decade when rock n' roll made its debut with these 50's party ideas! Yes, the 50s, when Elvis was the reigning king and transistor radios were all the rage. The average yearly salary was around $3,000, and only the lucky families owned a color TV. Little girls yearned to be Barbie, while little boys emulated Davy Crockett and coveted his coonskin hat. Women walked around in poodle skirts with bobby socks and saddle shoes, and men wore tight, cuffed jeans with white t-shirts (and a pack of cigarettes usually rolled in the sleeve). American Bandstand and Dick Clark introduced the coolest dances with the newest music, while everyone was watching James Dean at the drive-in movies. Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat and Dr. Jonas Salk developed a vaccine for polio. Father knew best and everyone loved Lucy. So swivel those hips, grease back that hair, and get ready to the celebrate the decade that changed us all, The Fabulous Fifties! Bring your oldies but goodies over to the clubhouse at 7 pm on Friday and Rock the Night away!
