“Free dance planned”
From Knik Arm Courier, Aug. 3, 1960:
A free dance at the Chugiak Carnival Hall at Mile 21 will provide a pleasant opportunity to meet the candidates for election on the Republican ticket.
Sponsored by the Chugiak Republican Club, the dance is open to all residents of Chugiak, regardless of political affiliation.
There will be refreshments, a cake walk and dancing will be to records — old favorites and popular tunes.
The festivities will take place on Saturday, Aug. 6 and last from 8 p.m. until midnight.
Mrs. Bochstahler of the Chugiak Republican Club says, “Come down and meet the candidates in an informal atmosphere.”
