Meredith dances the night away
by Kimbcriy Zucker
A transformation took place
Fri., Oa. 28. The Meredith population
was decked out in sparkling dresses,
high heels, and make-up. A definite
change from the sweatshirt attire nor
mally seen in class. What was so spe
cial about last Friday night?
Meredith angels (l-r) Catherine Doughton, Mandy Steele, and Julia
Rathbone prepared for an exciting evening at the White Iris Ball.
Friday night marked the an
nual White Iris Ball, sponsored by MEA.
The theme, “Night on the Nile” was
displayed throughout the Raleigh Civic
Center. There were metallic good
balloons floating around, a camel guard

dance floor and tasty refreshments.
Cindy Thornton, a sopho

A lot of preparation did go
into this year’s dance. MEA wanted
this dance to be the biggest one ever.
Each MEA member was required to sell
at least 10 tickets, and tickets were on
sale each day in the cafeteria.
The tickets were $25.00 per
couple, and $9.00 for a t-shirt. The t-
shirts this year are long sleeved, with a
colorful Egyptian design on the back.
The band at the dance was
Golden Touch. They played a variety
of music ranging from beach music to
the famous electric slide. The most
interesting thing about the band were
the women. Three ofthe women were
dressed in long sequin gowns and re
sembled the Supremes.
Amy Wescott, a junior, said,
“I thought that was band was okay,
but I would have rather had a DJ. The
music was okay, but it was really hard
to dance to it.”
Those who love to shag had a
different opinion. Shelly McGirt, a
senior said, “I

table, students had a choice of water
or pineapple punch. Toeat,theselec-

This year’s White Iris Ball was a
definite hit. Traci McLamb, a freshman
said, “I was surprised at how many
people were there. It was my first
dance at Meredith, and I had a great
time. I really liked the decorations and
the band, and I cannot wait until the
