The Recreation League of Cleveland hosts 2008 Assembly Ball



The Recreation League of Cleveland presented 16 young women and 18 young men, the daughters and sons of its member families, at the 71st Assembly Ball held at The Union Club.
Mrs. Edward Scott Emerson and Mrs. Michael Robert Shaughnessy served as co-chairmen of the Ball that began with Master of Ceremonies Mr. Roger Farnham Rankin introducing Franklin Bourne Floyd III, Douglas Milligan Horner, Jr., Leland Ford Morris and Douglas Howell Smythe as the four Head Ushers who performed the traditional candle lighting ceremony before the introduction of the 14 additional ushers, one in absentia.
Then presented individually, each of the Debutantes, escorted by her father or Presenter, descended the Grand Staircase, its banisters adorned with spheres of flowers, including hydrangeas, delphinium, mini-chrysanthemums and amaryllis. Each of the Debutantes carried a bouquet of muscari and allium secured with aspidistra leaves. The John Petrone Orchestra played during both the formal presentation and the traditional Father-Daughter Dance that was performed following the Debutantes greeting their families and guests in the receiving line.
Floral designer Pieter Bouterse created the stunning decorations that included floral spheres suspended from twin arches spanning the third floor ballroom’s columns entwined with green garlands. Nautilus shells filled with orchids were used on small tables surrounding the dance floor while centerpieces for the dinner featured cylindrical and urn-shaped vases containing an array of flowers in shades of blue, yellow and chartreuse.
Until breakfast at midnight, music for the ball was provided by Alex Donner & The New York Minute.
