Here’s your rundown for Sept. 30-Oct. 6.
This week in Fox Valley history:
55 years ago: Ray Dorschner’s Rainbow Valley Dutchmen performed at the Oct. 3, 1964, “Over 30” dance at the Cinderella Ballroom. The next day, Alvin Styczynski, the concertina king from Pulaski, pulled the crowds onto the dance floor.
