Meridian Ball Feeling Spry at 50

The sold-out 50th Meridian Ball had the look and feel of timeless fun — with the historic Meridian and White-Meyer houses as its venue. The Oct. 12 pre- dinners and ball “brings together members of the public and private sector to celebrate Meridian’s ongoing efforts to prepare leaders for a complex global future,” the group advises. Guests, this year totaling around 800, include national and international officials, businesspersons, media and cultural figures. You know it is a good time, when you get the chance to dance with the Swedish ambassador — in this case, Karin Olofsdotter — and her public diplomacy, press and communications counselor, Monica Enqvist. Here’s to 50 more years of the ball and great dancing late into the evening.
