Cotillion Club

Our last cotillion dance for the 2018 season was held on June 5, with 51 people present for a nice dinner at the Austin Country Club and dancing to The Big Band, which was wonderful.

We in Austin are very luck to have this 17-piece band and look forward to their return next June 2019 as it’s our 100th year, which is something to celebrate.
