Grab your dancing shoes and celebrate the 80th anniversary of the USO Building
(2105 Avenue M). The Houstonian Big Band (formerly Billie Ledbetter’s Big Band) will perform swing style music from 7 until 10 p.m.
Dedicated February 17, 1942, the USO building has provided 80 years of public service recreational programs for military servicemen, YMCA, County elections, high school proms and now Bay City Parks and Recreation. The Bay City building was one of 273 new construction projects or renovations undertaken under the Community Facilities Act. 15 of these were built on the Gulf Coast with only two known to still be in existence. In the past decade there have been over $1 million of improvements made to the building to help preserve its heritage and remain a vibrant part of our future.
