Spring Cotillion Invitation

Post date: Feb 7, 2020 4:25:48 PM


As you know the ladies put on a spring Cotillion each year. March 28, 2020 will be the 3rd one they have hosted in Frankfort, KY at Berry Hill Mansion. This is as close as we can get to a period setting and be able to enjoy the attendance we have been fortunate to have.

They continually add new aspects to keep preserving our southern heritage and our southern culture. To continue a time honored tradition this year there are seven young ladies being presented as debutantes.

On be half of the ladies, I would like to invite you all and your camps to attend the noon time BBQ and evening Cotillion. The 52nd Regimental String Band will be providing music, there will be game tables set up to take a break from the ballroom floor, and plenty of southern hospitality to enjoy. We have the honor of also having John T. Wayne, Historian, Western author, and grandson of none other than “The Duke” John Wayne.

All proceeds go to preservation projects In Kentucky. A couple of examples are the maintenance and memorial service at the confederate cemetery located on the Perryville Battlefield State Historic Site, a donation to the Gen. Ben Hardin Helm Camp 1703 for their flagpole. While we don’t make a lot of money, we are able to support projects here in the Commonwealth.

So if nothing else, come enjoy the fellowship, the food, the music and the southern hospitality as you help us preserve our southern heritage and our southern culture by supporting this event.
