Another year provided another opportunity for the LaGrange Cotillion to introduce many of the ladies into the community during its big party in December.

The LaGrange Cotillion Club was first established in 1927 by its first president, Lady Liz Rack Straw, and strives to ensure that its members become successful women not only in their community but also in other communities across the country.

Each year, the LaGrange Cotillion Club participates in a service project to improve the community. This year the LaGrange Cotillion Club volunteered at the First Choice Women’s Center where they ran a coat campaign. The coats were donated to LaGrange Clothing Center on Ridley Ave. They also helped pack snack bags for meals on wheels and Christmas presents at First Presbyterian Church for homeless individuals in the area.
