The theme of this year's Remembrance Day Ball is a Tartan Ball to commemorate those of Celtic heritage who fought during the Civil War. This is an 1860's fancy dress (costume) ball. Gentlemen may wish to come as a historical character such as Rob Roy, William Wallace, King Robert the Bruce, a clansman in a great kilt or a Chieftain of a clan. Ladies, you may wish to come as a simple shepherdess, a milk maid or a noble clans woman. Be as creative as you like! If you do not wish to wear a fancy dress costume, then gentlemen are welcomed to wear kilted attire, or add a waistcoat or cockade of Tartan. Ladies may wish to wear the traditional Tartan sash with your ballgown or add tartan ribbons to your headpiece. Thistles (Scotland), Daffodils (Wales) and Shamrocks (Ireland) can also be incorporated with pride. Of course, any Civil War attire is welcome.
During dinner, enjoy the lilting sounds of a Celtic Harpist. The ball will begin with the Calling of the Clans led by a bagpiper. The evening will start with a Social Hour at 5:30pm followed by a Three Course Dinner at 6:30 pm and the Ball starting at 8:30pm. Ms. Susan de Guardiola will once again be the dance mistress and music will be provided by Fleeting Moments Waltz & Quickstep Orchestra. Cost for the evening, including dinner, the ball and all the usual gifts such as the chocolate frames, flowers and door prizes is just $79 per person.
