The Westport Historical Society is currently exhibiting "The Curious Case of Ed Vebell." Ed is a 96 year old Westport resident who was sent off to fight in World War II, where he was going to be an aircraft gunner. However once his artistic abilities were discovered, he was reassigned as a field illustrator of Stars and Stripes, the U.S. Army's military newspaper.
In honor of Ed Vebell's wartime contribution and exciting life, the Westport Historical Society has invited everyone to learn how to dance to the tunes of the times, Swing!
