The Tolland Historical Society is inviting members of the public to buy tickets for “Arlyne’s Gold,” its 50th Anniversary Masquerade Ball, on Saturday, June 3 at 6 p.m.
The celebration honors the late Arlyne Garrity, the first president of the society when it was founded in 1966.
Cocktails will be served from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the secret garden at the Hicks-Stearns Museum on the Tolland Green. Dinner, catered by Tolland’s own Country Caterers, begins at 7 p.m., followed by the big band music of Kats N’Jammers until midnight.
Seating is limited, so purchase your tickets as soon as possible. Member seats are $50 per person, and non-member seats are $65, which includes a one-year membership to the society.
Tickets can be purchased at the Tolland Red and White store at 46 Tolland Green or by contacting gala chairperson Celeste Senechal at email@example.com.
Dress is formal. This will be a night to remember with specials guests, prizes for fashion and historical characters and games. Masks are suggested and will be available for a donation to the Hicks-Stearns Museum, which is donating the use of its property for the event.
