To celebrate the year of the formation of the Society and its growth over the last 50 years, “Mingle & Mix Like It’s 1966,” an event planned to bring back the food, the fun, the music and the styles of 1966 will be held at Regions Bank downtown on 9th Street, on August 26 from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.
The bank itself is representative of the era. It was designed and constructed as City National Bank in 1966.
“The feel of the era will be apparent as soon as guests arrive at the celebration we have planned,” said Judi Rabel, chairman of “Mingle & Mix.”
Once there, according to Rabel, music of the 1960s will be played by radio personality and 60s music expert Tiger Jack Garretson.
“We are hoping for a couple of surprise guests, which I can’t talk about or it wouldn’t be a surprise,” added Rabel. “We hope folks will come for a visit to 1966 Tuscaloosa. To add to the fun, we hope people will come as they were back then, Preppie or early Hippie. It will be a visit to the past. “
