|18 April 2020
||Annual Grand Ball This event has been canceled
Our own board and teachers have made a reluctant decision to cancel the Grand Ball on April 18, along with all of the associated events (house concert, after-ball party, Sunday brunch, walk-throughs, etc). It seemed fiscally prudent as well as good for everyone’s continued good health. If you have already registered our registrar will be contacting you.
Our Sapphire Anniversary Grand Ball was to feature music by Waverley Station: David Knight (fiddle) and Liz Donaldson (piano).
|11 May 2020
||End of the Year (Ice Cream and Pie) Social
