Our birthday ball committee works a lot during the year to bring you a great event. We met recently with the initial planning of the November 4th ball which will once again be at the Best Western Gateway Grand.
We have made some early decisions about the ball, such as keeping the $35 ticket prices, so we are now in a position to roll out our fliers, ad forms and tickets by the beginning of May. We will be finalizing the menu shortly. We are scouting some live bands for entertainment as that is what we want to do this year.
Our theme this year will be 100 years since America's entry into The Great War, later known as World War I and we will have some information and decorations at the event to support the theme.
We are excited to have a retired Marine Colonel coming as our Guest of Honor. He lives in Live Oak and we will ensure he experiences a top notch birthday ball.
When tickets go on sale (hardcopy and on-line) I will let everyone know. We will only have 240 tickets, so I know they will sell quickly. We already have commitments for a good number of tables. In addition to local guests, we will see people coming from Lake City, Live Oak, Chiefland and Ocala, to name a few. So when you hear tickets are on sale, please take the opportunity to purchase them before the event sells out.
The Birthday Ball Committee wishes you a good year as we develop this great annual event for you. Semper Fi.
