After the wedding and a brief reception in the parlor of the church with tea and scones (this time the scones were not made by John - as he usually does this for large events such as at dance camps or the NEFFA food booth) some of us went early to Cushing Hall in Norwell, the place were the Grand Ball was to be held to help setup. (Our job was to bring the sound equipment). The food was organized pot luck and quite delicious with lots of variety and lots of food.
The program included a Grand March, contra dances, English Country dances, the Lancers' Quadrille, some Israeli folk dances, a polka, and some waltzes interspersed with food breaks, toasts and the cake cutting, the Gay Blades Rapper team, and the Abbots Bromley. I was dressed a bit differently than I'd been dressed for the wedding. A good time was had by all at this delightful event for and organized by the lovely couple.
