Ugly Bug Ball

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, December 2, 2009

The Third Annual Ugly Bug Ball, held Friday night, featured a Southwestern theme.
This year, the fundraiser for the Center for the Environment at Catawba College offered dancing and fun, but it also celebrated the center’s past and upcoming air quality efforts.
Participants listened to the Big Band sounds of Steve Etters & the Jitterbugs and enjoyed a Southwestern buffet by Right Touch and desserts by Debbie Suggs. They listened to classic hits by Lonnie Carpenter or danced to the sounds of the band Sweet Dreams. Kent Bernhardt served as master of ceremonies.
Susan Cloninger and Susan Smith co-chaired the Ugly Bug Planning Committee. Members of the committee included Elisa Alfieri, Christy Cline, Tracy and Seamus Donaldson, Robin and Steve Fisher, Sue Fisher, Lillian Gascoigne, Joyce and Joel Goodwin, Bonnie and Jim Beal Graham, Annette Hall, Becky and Bruce Jones, Alice Ketcham, Margo and Phil Kirk, Leigh Ann Loeblein, Jim McDermott, Ellen Messinger, Beverly and Jim Mitchell, Susan Norvell, Jennifer Norvell, Carolyn and Dewey Peck, Jolene Philpott, Jennifer Pippin, Trisha Proper, Camille Reische, Oliver Scott, Hayes Smith, Cyncie Staats, Alice Stanback, Marianna and David Swaim, Annette Turner, Wanda Urbanska, Frances Weant and Amy Wimmer.
