Cotillion Ball at Rolling Hills Country Club
Step back in time to an era of formality where beautiful ball gowns adorned the cotillion
along with men in uniforms and stately long jackets. People came from miles around to attend these formal gatherings.
Simply stated, a cotillion is a formal party, dinner, or dance dedicated to the purpose of introducing young Southern debutante’s into society by their families. Historically families hosted grand balls in their homes, but over time the tradition developed where country clubs and other organizations took over the growing responsibility of hosting the party.
The “Newburgh Remembers” weekend cotillion ball is sponsored by Stoll, Ogden and Kern Attorneys and Commonwealth Engineering and will kick off our weekend of festivities. The decorations, music, and setting of the occasion will make you feel as though you’ve been transported back in time to the 1860’s.
