BOB HOPE’S 1967 CHRISTMAS TOUR

From World War II through the Gulf War, “The One-Man Morale Machine,” Bob Hope, brought a slice of Americana to deployed service personnel, especially during the Holidays. By 1967, nearly half a million Americans were stationed in Southeast Asia countering the Communist threat. We were winning! Join us for a review of this year in history and a viewing of the ’67 tour featuring special guests Raquel Welch, actress/singer Elaine Dunn, and Miss World Madeleine Bel.

DATE/TIME:  Sunday DECEMBER 16, 2018  1:30 p.m.
