Red & White Winter Ball Tradition Revived

This year’s school theme is Embrace your Roots and students are happy to embrace Mercy’s roots by reviving the longtime Mercy tradition of the Red & White Winter Ball! This beloved tradition first took place in December 1960 when the senior class created an unforgettable event for Mercy girls to celebrate the Christmas holiday season. Over the years it evolved from a senior dance to an all-class dance, giving all students the opportunity to attend a semi-formal dance. The Red & White Winter Ball has not taken place since 2012 so we are thrilled to announce its comeback as we embrace our roots during our 65th anniversary year!

The Red & White Winter Ball will take place on Friday, Jan. 5, 2018. We are looking for dance sponsors and people willing to make a donation of food or decor. The more supplies donated, the more affordable dance tickets will be for everyone!

The Alumnae Fall Play Wine & Cheese Reception was attended by members from the class of '66, '86, '09, and '13. It was great to meet fellow alumnae and their family members and was the perfect kick-off to a fantastic production by our students. The Prodigious Snob was a hit!
