Chicago 40th Anniversary New Year’s Ball

Saturday, January 18, 2020

Tea/Brunch Dance

Sunday, January 19, 2020

at the Baker Community Center, St Charles, IL

music by Tim Macdonald (fiddle), Colyn Fischer (fiddle), Jeremy Ward (cello), and Dave Wiesler (piano)

This is a very special ball for us as we are celebrating our 40th anniversary. We are planning a buffet dinner prior to the ball.  Look here for more information soon.

We have chosen to make the ball program about our Branch and Branch friends as we lost several Branch members and friends this year. Many dances are written by former and/or current members of the Branch.
