Hangar Hotel to host New Year’s Eve dance
A chance to help support the United Service Organizations (USO) while ringing in (or swinging in) 2018 in the 1940s style will be offered on Sunday, Dec. 31, at the Hangar Hotel and Conference Center.
A percentage of the proceeds from the New Year’s Eve Hangar Dance will be donated to USO Ft. Hood, which delivers programs and services to more than 40,000 service members and their families.
The dance will feature big band music by Fredericksburg’s Bill Smallwood and The Lonestar Swing Orchestra.
Attendees can participate in swing dance lessons from 8-9 p.m. before the band plays from 9 p.m. to 12:30 a.m.
Tickets are $60 per person and include a champagne toast, party favors, black-eyed peas and cornbread at midnight.
Attendees are encouraged to wear their best 1940s inspired outfit and participate in the costume contest.

Those donning a military uniform will receive a coupon.
