Two of the ball committee members had daughters making their debuts this year. Catherine Hannay is the daughter of Marsha Haynes Hannay, a Peninsula deb in the 1970s. Alexandra Douglass is the daughter of Julie Frances Douglass, who has been on the ball committee for two years.
The evening was concluded with dancing to Dick Bright and his Orchestra, along with the Club 90 Band.
