Out & About: Fort Ligonier's Cannon Ball
Traffic was bumper to bumper leading to Fort Ligonier on Sept. 15 as guests made their way to the Cannon Ball.
The invitation said, “It's not a dance, but you will have a ball!”
From the Kitchen on Main's bountiful appetizers (did you see the size of the tomato and mozzarella skewers?) to spirited competition for the live auction, the fundraising fete was a blast.
The museum's new education wing and its patio came in handy to accommodate more than 400 revelers.
Between the museum and the hilltop stockade, re-enactor Wade Stoner held court inside an officer's tent, providing a look at the type of quarters Maj. George Washington might have called home on the frontier.
Connor Evans set the mood with selections on the bagpipe.
Steering the event committee were co-chairs Sandy Morgan and Joe Byers. Executive Director Annie Urban and fort staffers including Julie Donovan and Erica Nuckles did their best to give everyone a personal welcome.
