Event: Preservation Ball

Ladies and Gents, this was forward to me by a couple of our esteemed members, to pass on to you!  It seems we have all been invited to a fancy dress ball!

Get your tickets NOW, as the Tahoe House is a small venue and will sell out quickly.  For tickets, call Carolyne at (775) 847-5264

Look for future articles and workshops on what to wear to the Preservation Ball.  For a taste, here a couple inspirational images!
