    Black and White Ball 2017

    Friday, September 29, 2017
    Depot Great Hall

    We had LOTS of fun. We showed glam in our best black and white duds. Struted our dance moves to the live music of The Jane Gang featuring Mary Lou Williams. Enjoyed great food by The Boat Club. Decked in fancy hats, we shone in the Parade of Hats—and some won a prize. We carried off great items in the auction.
