The Debutante Club of Clearwater Courtier Ball

The Debutante Club of Clearwater celebrated its 60th anniversary during the Clearwater Courtier Ball on December 29, 2019 at Ruth Eckerd Hall, chaired by Ela Landegger and Beth McMullen. The presentation began by recognizing all former Clearwater and Carlouel debutantes and marshals in attendance at the Ball, including Merry June Jackson Burwell, one of the organization’s original debutantes of 1959. Following the presentation, there was dinner and dancing to the 12-piece band DeLeon. Photos by Beth Kelly Photography (www.BethKellyPhotography.com).
