They Still Have These?

A Catholic debutante ball down in 'Stralia... apparently, it's increasing in popularity, too:

Twenty-two debs and their partners are currently 'in training' for the ball, to be held at the Ex-Services Club on Friday, September 1, when they will be presented to the Catholic Bishop of Armidale, the Very Rev Luc Matthys.

One of the organisers, Ros Bible, said the response had been gratifying - ‘the best for ages.'

Mrs Bible said one reason had been a move to involve Armidale's other secondary schools.

Ball president Peter Parnell and matron of honour, Anne Parnell, are thrilled with the interest and the cooperation being shown by the debs and their partners at practice.
