This is from the Kenosha Facebook page “You Know You’re from Kenosha If, The Original Group!
Here is the post and photo
“ Dearest Kenosha 50s Rock 'n' Rollers!
I'm a Canadian filmmaker that has visited Kenosha countless times, in particular to visit the Eagles Ballroom (now Madrigano Marino Shores) and conduct interviews for a documentary film I've co-produced about Buddy Holly's final tour. We've filmed interviews with fans who attended all the shows, including the second show of the tour on January 24th, 1959 at the aforementioned Eagles Ballroom. ??
We are less than a month away from the 62nd anniversary of this show!
I am on the lookout for anybody who either attended this historic rock 'n' roll show that long ago night or knows anybody who has. I am hoping for more interviews (via telephone or email, in this case) to give me an even broader perspective on that evening. I am even offering a reward for any picture taken that cold wintry night!!
I've included the trailer of our docu-series on the first post of this thread.
I've also included a photo of the Ballroom, an ad from the tour, a photo taken that night by famed local photographer Tony Szikil and a lot more Kenosha Winter Dance Party goodies. It's truly important to preserve memories from this tour that was a turning point in rock 'n' roll history!
Please post your memories and reach out to me via private messaging, friend request me or email me if you prefer (email@example.com) if you were there! It would mean a lot to my research of this stop of the tour...
Oh, one last thing. If you have any questions at all about this tour or the Kenosha stop, please ask here! I have done extensive research on this tour and will be able to answer all questions. ?? Let's get a nice rock 'n roll discussion brewing to ring in a New Year!
Rave on, stay safe and Happy Holidays! ??”
I absolutely feel that I recognize some of my classmates. Is that Diane (I think that was her name) right in the middle of the photo?
I am sure my 1961 classmates will either recognize themselves or someone they knew in this picture.
As sad as it is to know it was in an obituary, it is amazing to learn more about Ruth, the life she led and what she accomplished.
HAPPY NEW YEAR BIRTHDAY!! May be both be good ones!

Kinda looks like you will be leading the pack for us all turning 78. Hope you feel it is a great time to be alive and that you will have a healthy year with sweet memories being made in 2021. Happy Birthday on January 3!
I was in homeroom with Nancy, and in choir. Loved what Suzette told about her and the neighborhood.
Enjoyed reading the little snippets about your life & employment. Also, the photos - nice family. Hope this new year of your life is very good to you and your family.

Amazing what our classmates did in their lives. Who would have thought that you would be a commercial fisherman. I am intrigued, as I'm sure other classmates might be. Where and what times of year? Can't imagine some of the memories you must have.
So here is a HAPPY BIRTHDAY wish ??. Have a great day!
Just wanted to make sure I got this in...HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Wishing you a year of good family times, good health, sweet memories, and much to look forward to in "your" new year!
