The weekend finishes with a potluck brunch. Please bring a brunch item to share, as we recover from last night's festivities. Around noon, the party moves outside to do some dancing on the lawn. Bring your ghillies or any comfortable shoes for dancing outdoors, and musicians can bring instruments for a jam session!
Please park at Lincoln Town Hall; full directions will be available in the ball booklet or by emailing the ball chairs.
