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.'

The black-tie event will be filled with live music, food, drink and more. Tickets include heavy hors d'oeuvres throughout the night, live music and dancing, premium liquors, and champagne and wine.

The Palmette Ball gets its name from a feature of the McRitchie Hollis Museum. As renovation began on the recentlyopened furnishings museum, a reoccurring architectural motif became apparent throughout the interior and exterior of the 1937 home. 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.
