Party guests dressed in their 1960s inspired, finest while dining on delicious food and dancing to 1960s music provided by the Ken Arlen Orchestra.  Guests also were the first to enjoy our new exhibit Evanston 1968: Seasons of Change, all while supporting  Evanston History Center’s mission to collect, preserve, exhibit, and interpret the rich history of Evanston.  Partygoers had a wonderful time reveling in the stunning Charles Gates Dawes house and enjoying the wonderful atmosphere. Many thanks to our sponsors which include Porte Brown Accountants and Advisors, First Bank & Trust, Bradley Investment Center, Northwestern University and Heart Certified Auto Care and to the Melody in August committee, chaired by Janet Nieman Reed. Special thanks to EHC Trustee Mike Ford for bringing Ali and Jade, the dancers, and to Neal Gambow and Steve Albertson for bringing their vintage Corvair convertibles!  The dancers and vintage cars enhanced the 60s theme and overall fun! If you missed the party be sure to stop in soon to see the exhibit and save the date, August 24th, 2019 for our next Melody in August.
