The Debutante Cotillion Club of Texarkana presented five young ladies during the annual Presentation Ball on Thursday, December 28, at Texarkana Country Club.
The Debutantes of 2017 were introduced last May at an Announcement Tea at Texarkana Country Club. The young ladies have been honored at teas, parties, and socials throughout the summer months as well as over the Christmas holiday.
The debutantes, dressed in traditional white gowns, carried bouquets of red roses from H&N Floral, Gifts & Garden as they were presented to society in the presence of hundreds of guests. Fred Norton, Jr. was the master of ceremonies. Following the presentation, the debutantes and their guests were entertained during a dance with music provided by Split Decision of Texarkana, Texas.
The Club’s sponsors for the 2017 season were Blaire Barlow and Claire Northam. The advisors for the Club are Ann Patterson Coleman, Remica Crank Gray, Rosemary Smith Hardy, and Junie Young.
