Everyone joined in the fun and helped to raise funds to support the critical work of Rock Valley College. Our 2012 Event was wonderfully successful and the ballroom was filled with many “Musicians Through the Decades” – the theme of the event! For a glimpse into some of the fun had by all of the “Musicians” in attendance, please view the 2012 photos right now on Facebook.
