Photo redux: Sesquicentennial Governors Ball. Shades of next week’s Beaux Arts Ball

Sesquicentennial Governor’s Ball Northfield’s last big ball was the 2005 Sesquicentennial Governors Ball. Next week will rival it: NAG’s Beaux Arts Ball, part of Northfield Arts Guild’s 50th Anniversary season. I’ll be there with my sweetie, hopefully 1) not stepping on her dancing shoes; and 2) taking better photos than this one.

You can purchase tickets online here.

Photo album: Ramping up for the NAG’s Beaux Arts Ball

Rob Shanilec, Beaux Arts Ball co-chairBAMG/NEG head honcho Rob Shanilec invited me to a party at Jennifer and Chris Sawyer’s house on Monday to kick off the promo blitz for the big event of the Northfield Arts Guild’s 50th Anniversary season, the Beaux Arts Ball, coming up on Dec. 19 at Carleton College’s Great Hall.

Rob is co-chair of the event, as he was for the last big ball, the 2005 Sesquicentennial Governors Ball (photo album here, 2007 blog post summary here)

Dan Freeman, tuxedo guy, freelance undertaker, The event will feature music by the Bend in the River Big Band and information about ballroom dancing lessons will soon be leaking out.

Dan Freeman was at the party with his undertaker face and tuxedo on. It’s not too early to contact Dan about a tuxedo for the event.

And you can now purchase tickets online for the Beaux Arts Ball. Don’t wait too long, tho. Only 500 will be sold.
