If you've been here in Killington long enough to remember the
University of Killington Homecoming Cotillion and Debutant Balls of
the '80's, I'd bet on the fact that you have some very special
memories. If you've not ben here long enough to have experience the
Cotillions then you've missed some of the high points of the social
seasons. However, all is not lost!
This year the Sherburne Memorial Library turns 100 years old.
Believe it? 100 years old!
As part of the Library's Centennial Celebration and in the spirt
of the cotillions of yore, on Sunday, Sept. 8 from 7-11 p.m. the
Friends of the Library will present the "Sherburne Memorial
Library's Centennial Gala" at the Killington Events Hall on River
Road. It is sure to be a night of music and dancing, food, drink
and classic good times.
So ladies, reach way in the back of your closet and bring out
that floor-length dress you've been dying to wear one more time.
Gentlemen, dust off that black tie and tux or that three piece suit
you haven't won since the last wedding, and don't be afraid to
present you companion with a nosegay. ("Nosegay" is a small flower
bouquet, typically given as a gift. They have existed in some form
since the medieval times, when the term was used to mean an
ornament that appeals to the nose.)
This is a great chance to dress to the nines and share a very
special evening with your friends and neighbors. This is what
memories are make of.
As part of the festivities, there will be a King and Queen, a
Jitterbug contest, silent auction with fantastic items, music by
Groovin' Dukes and the inimitable DJ Dave, food and drink catered
by Phil Black and his talented Look Out crew, and much much
Don't miss this opportunity to come together as a community to
celebrate the 100th birthday of a true and loyal friend: The
Sherburne Memorial Library.
