We lived in Palermo for several years in the late '50s and to the mid '60s. Our house was right beside "the Hall", on the corner of #5 and #25.
Regularly, they would have Square Dances with a live band and caller. Dancing would go into the wee hours of the night of 10:00 or 11:00. The Hall also held regular euchre parties.
Due to the rural nature of the village, every Halloween they would have a party for the kids. We were judged on our costumes by age and given a small bag of candy to take home. This was a big deal for most of us and we would start planning our costumes long in advance. The profits from the dances and card games also paid for the fireworks at the Palermo Park.
