THE CIRCUS SIDESHOW COMES TO THE GROVE - FREAKS & ALL
Arts Project end-of-season Ball ended the 2010 season of
"The Greatest Shows on Earth" with a big BANG.
“Its the best
Ball we’ve had in 20 years” someone said at the night’s end, a sentiment echoed
in various ways as guests, reluctant to depart, were congratulating each other.
And indeed the best organized, most festive and creative in my recent memory. This
is no accident – or reflection on the economy (what economy?). I truly believe
this is a reflection of Coco Love, a great combo of beauty and brains, who has truly done a magnificent job as President (and
the ever energetic capable partner, Margo) - long may you reign! But it is not
one person, but the most dynamic, capable and interested Board, all of whom
seem to be extraordinarily
involved and with the right motives.
I have just been informed that there were over 200 tickets sold, a truly
sold out event, and 19 seats had to be added. Our tireless photographer Lorraine raised more
than $250.00 with personal shots.
The ball planning committee consisted
of Anita, Mary and Troy
(Miss Homecoming Queen ’10) and they did great job of putting it all together!
DJ Chuck McTague kept the place hopping – literally. The delicious food was
catered by Island Breeze prepared by Chef Angela Badolato.
Great merriment was had by all and the
"Sideshow" Ball was the most thrilling and successful as far back as
anyone can remember... as fabulous as it gets!!!

Entertainment" with special lyrics for the event – and that’s show
