The committee in charge of bringing the Vietnam Moving Wall to Oswego this summer has announced plans for a large fundraiser in March.

Operation Salute & Boogie will take place from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. Friday, March 31, at the Fox Valley Kickers Club in Oswego. The night will include raffles, silent auction, door prizes, appetizers, dancing and music by the Stingrays.
