Singles Parties, January 11 - February 8, 2014

Despite the largest storm in over a year, our Valentines Ball at The Fairmont, Feb 8, attracted a huge crowd! I was concerned because earlier I had predicted 500+ would attend, and was afraid that my credibility would be shot, through no fault of my own, if the rain scared everyone away. It was a high-energy, well-dressed crowd (most appropriate for the elegance of The Venetian Room) and DJ Mike Keating did another terrific job for us.
