Historical Society Palmette Ball tickets on sale

Tickets are now on sale for the Newnan- Coweta Historical Society's Palmette Ball - New Year's Eve gala.

The event will be held at the historic Train Depot on East Broad Street Dec. 31 starting at 7 p.m. and running to 1 a.m. New Year's Day.

'Ring in the New Year this New Year's Eve at a formal gala at the Depot,' said historical society spokesman Jeff Bishop. 'This event is our annual fundraiser for the general operating fund for the Newnan- Coweta Historical Society, as well as a children's interactive museum. A champagne toast counting down to the New Year will cap off our festivities for the night.'

This ornamental motif was found to be the 'palmette.'

This has become the logo for the Newnan-Coweta Historical Society. Tickets for members are $65 per person or $ 110 per couple.

Ticket s for non-members a re $75 per person or $130 per couple. Call 770-251-0207 for additional details or to purchase tickets.
