A Masquerade Ball, with masks inspired by the Venetian Carnivals of the Renaissance Period and sponsored by The Homespun Group, LLC, will be held on Saturday, June 16th from 5:00pm to midnight at The Sheraton Diamond Ballroom, Williston Road, South Burlington, VT (about 149 miles from Keene)
Tickets are now on sale and will be offered at $40.00 per person until April 15th. After that date, ticket prices increase to $50.00 per person. Our limit will be 60 students, so please register and purchase your tickets as soon as possible to get the best price and to insure your teen's space for this once in a lifetime opportunity. This is "NOT" a dance strictly designed for couples, individual students are very welcome and encouraged to attend. As a matter of fact, in past we have had far more singles in attendance at our dances than we have had couples.
The ticket price includes hors d'oeuvres, dinner, dessert, beverages, music, a photo memento and an evening of chaperoned all-around fun for homeschooled teenagers.
We will also be holding several mask making seminars prior to the ball for students who wish to make their own masks. These classes will be an opportunity for students to gather, mingle and create the mask of their
dreams, limited only by the boundaries of their own imaginations. These classes will be dependent on interest and details will be forthcoming.
