Swing dance planned at Waterhouse Center

To celebrate the Brick Store Museum’s ongoing “Vitamin V: How Food Fought the Second World War” exhibition about the history of food and nutrition in the 1940s, the museum has joined with Kennebunk Rotary and the Waterhouse Youth Endowment Fund to host The Victory Dance at the brand-new Waterhouse Center on Main Street in Kennebunk on Saturday, Oct. 4.

Group swing dance lessons will start at 5:30 p.m. Guests are invited to dance the night away until 9 p.m. to the live big-band music of the New Legacy Swing Band.

The Brick Store Museum and Kennebunk Rotary will hold a raffle for great prizes – which include everything from local restaurant gift certificates to tickets to DisneyWorld – and a photo booth to capture guests’ photos for the evening.

Small museum displays on Kennebunk in the 1940s will circle the dance floor, and guests are also invited to walk up to the museum during the dance to see the “Vitamin V” exhibit for free. Guests are invited to sport their finest 1940s-era style for a Best-Retro- Dressed competition.

“This event means so many things to the museum,” Director Cynthia Walker said. “It’s great to be involved in such a wonderful community event, and make history come alive with music and dancing – something brand new.

“This whole planning process has been a great display of community organizations and businesses coming together to do something great.”

The Victory Dance at the Waterhouse Center is sponsored by the Waterhouse Youth Endowment Fund and Kennebunk Savings Bank.
