Join North Shore Senior Center for a trip down memory lane when the talented singer Laura Freeman showcases the music that was popular during World War II. Songs like “Accentuate the Positive,” and “God Bless America” played a big part in keeping up morale on the home front — while sending a supportive message to our soldiers overseas.
Laura’s “For the Boys” Cabaret Performance takes place at the Arthur C. Nielsen, Jr. Campus in Northfield on Wednesday, June 27, at 1 p.m. Registration fee is $10 for members and $12 for non-members. Call 847.784.6030 for more information or to register.
