SYKESVILLE — The eighth annual G.I. Jive World War II-era Dinner and Dance will be held Nov. 14 at the Sykesville-Freedom District Volunteer Fire Department Hall.

"We all owe a debt of gratitude to our veterans, especially with so many military personnel overseas now," said Kari Greenwalt, chairwoman of the event.

"Freedom truly isn't free," she noted, "and the rights of Americans wouldn't be possible without those serving, past and present."

World War II veterans are admitted for free.

Cost for others are $30 per person or $210 for a table of eight.

The event is sponsored by the Sykesville-South Carroll Rotary Club and benefits the Gate House Museum of History in Sykesville.

The event features the Thom Roland Dance Band and a dinner catered by E.W. Beck's Restaurant and Pub, as well as memorabilia regarding World War II on display from the private collection of local residents Terry and Tim Allen.

The event focuses on the World War II era because the music can be enjoyed by all generations, Greenwalt said.

All veterans are welcomed and recognized for their efforts at the event, she said.

Greenwalt is a member of the Rotary and former director of the Gate House. She has run the event for years, and said the Rotary wanted to show continued support of the museum.

"With the difficulties the town of Sykesville is currently experiencing with its budget, the Rotary wanted to do something to help the museum," she said.

She added that many Rotary members have family artifacts displayed at the Gate House, and the Rotary also stores historic files at the museum.
