A Grand Ball
As I contemplate what I am about to write I truly marvel that it has yet to happen. I am still quite amused by the McLean house gathering. Lady Simpson and I have many fond memories and catch each other musing about it on a regular basis.
With that in mind I will propose the following dangerous idea... A Grand Ball. This would be a gathering to rival all others that would require all chapters to come together and pool their endeavors into one giant party, ANNUALLY.
This suits us here in "the country" fine as I am doubtful that our sparse population is ready yet to host a gathering here, but would be willing to co-sponsor with anyone who wanted to hold one in the Portland under the auspices of our multiple "manors". I realize this may cause some trepidation, of which I hope all realize is quite innocent in its genesis on my part.
It could even become a fund raiser at some point, with profits going to sponsor other events or activities for the chapters. Perhaps the Grand Ball can be the finale of a weekend of merriment and sport? The options are many and varied.
I would love to hear from any and all interested in throwing such an event. Surely with our varied locations and numerous resources this could happen. I also don't like seeing Lady Debourgh losing here mind at our expense.
I welcome your response.
Cheers- Lt. A
