In addition to a new year, St. Augustine was introduced to a new tradition this month with its first military ball hosted by Forward March.
St. Augustine’s Inaugural Military Ball kicked off the 450th commemoration year. Some of St. Augustine’s most notable were there including St. Augustine Mayor Nancy Shaver, City Manager John Regan, Major General Emmett R. Titshaw, County Commissioner Cyndi Stevenson, State Representative Doc Renuart, and St. Augustine Beach Mayor Andrea Samuels.
To put the event together, the ball had a committee of about 20 people, including Dan Sullivan and Betsy Yeomans.
