Austin Cotillion Dance Club

Beautiful Christmas decorations adorned the Austin Country Club during our dance on Dec. 4. A delicious dinner and dancing to the Barry Rush Band contributed to a festive and enjoyable evening for our members and guests.

We were pleased to welcome Mike Hyland, Susan Poulson and Ione McClellan as new Cotillion members. Tom and Sue Bowers were guests for the evening.
