event. General chairman of Monte
Carlo Ball is John Maasab.
Tickets for the dance will go on

Held Every Fall
The dance has been held each
fall since then. Each year the
theme and decorations have cen-
tered around a Monte Carlo gamb-
ling casino atmosphere.
Intermission entertainment in
former years has featured folk
songs and dances from such coun-
tries as India, Israel, China, Latin
America, England, Turkey, Arabia,
Thailand and the Philippines.
Last year's dance decorations
featured a patio to which palm
trees, flowers and small tables
added a garden-like atmosphere.
Giant playing cards and green
branches and plants were also used
to decorate the ballroom.
