Having a Ball at North East Community Center’s Masquerade

Rural Intelligence Parties and Openings Sarah Todd reports from Lakeville.
On Saturday, October 13, revelers donned their finest gourd masks, flapper dresses, and top hats for the North East Community Center’s annual masquerade ball.  The home of hosts Robert Bristow and Pilar Proffitt (pictured at left), the architectural and interior design team behind Poesis Design, was alight with pre-Halloween merry-making. Guests sipped spiked apple cider and snuck off for tarot card readings with local psychic Diana Ziegler. Attendees who arrived mask-less were given sparkly, feathered disguises created by NECC’s Teen Team. In a barn next door, DJ Troy Ramcharran packed the dance floor with old-school crowd-pleasers (from the ‘70s). In between songs, guests sampled cheeses, pastries, and glasses of Tinhof Wine and bid on auction prizes that ranged from a shooting lesson courtesy of Orvis Sandanona Shooting Grounds to a bottle of whiskey from Hillrock Estate Distillery and a two-night stay at Red Lion Inn and The Porches Inn. All profits went to benefit the NECC, which serves townships throughout northeastern Dutchess County.
