On Wednesday, November 20th, Clan Logan attended the Debutantes Reception at the Black Watch Armoury on Bleury street in Montreal. This event unites the Montreal Highland Ball attendees with the young dancers who will be performing at the Ball held at the Marriot Chateau Champlain on November 22nd. There was an official presentation of each Debutante as we had a nice drink and something to nibble on.
Debutantes are young women of aristocratic or upper-class family backgrounds who have reached maturity and as new adults, come into society at a formal "debut" or possibly debutante ball.Originally, the term meant that a woman was old enough to be married and part of her purpose of coming out was to display her to eligible bachelors and their families with a view to marriage within a select circle. This
old tradition that dates to the 18th century continues.The Debutantes must follow weeks of dancing and etiquette lessons to prepare for the Montreal ball.
At this reception, it gives them the opportunity to mingle with high profile guests while gradually getting ready for the event that happens days later. Clan Logan, as well as meeting the Debutantes, was able to speak with key representatives of various organisations such as Scott MacKenzie of the Montreal Highland Games and Chantale Ménard, President of the Black Watch Women's Division. The Montreal Saint Andrew's Society has asked us to continue directing the Clans at the 2020 Montreal Highland
Games. They were very satisfied with what Clan Logan had to offer. Many topics were discussed in terms of our implication. We have been given the green light to go forth with different new initiatives at our next Montreal games. As well as attending and hosting at various events, our members will be called on to participate and help. We had a great evening cheering on the Debutantes and
thank the Montreal saint Andrew’s Society for a lovely evening.
