Party Like it is 1813: New Albany’s Living History Committee will host its fifth event in a year-long bicentennial celebration of the founding of New Albany in 1813 with the Governor’s Ball. The Governor’s Ball refers to Indiana’s first governor, Jonathan Jennings, who lived in Charlestown. It is believed that as he made his way from Charlestown to Corydon for his inauguration, he stopped in New Albany where the citizens hosted a ball in his honor. The re-enactment of the ball will include historic music and dances called by Tom & Toni Tumbusch of Cincinnati. Historic clothing from any time period can be worn or modern formal attire is welcome. A free dance practice session will be held at the Knight’s of Columbus Hall from 1 to 2 p.m. on the day of the ball. Snacks and beverages will be available during the evening.

8th Annual Kirkin’ O the Tartans

When: 10 a.m. Sunday

Where: St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 1015 E. Main St., New Albany

Cost: Free

St. Paul’s, along with the Scottish Society of Louisville, hosts its 8th Annual Kirkin’ O the Tartans. A piper and drummer herald the entrance of the clans into the sanctuary. During the regular service of Holy Communion, The Beadle of the pronounces a special blessing of the clans. A Scottish style luncheon will be served after the service. Why do we celebrate clans and tartans? The American Episcopal Church got its start after the Revolutionary War  with help from the Scottish Episcopal Church. Since America no longer had ties to the Church of England, we needed the Scottish bishops to pass the apostolic ordination to our American bishops. In Scotland the clansmen demonstrated true brotherhood and the clan was the family. The tartan is a symbol of this love and togetherness. In our Kirkin’ service, we remember ancient times, as well as past and present kith and kin, while asking God’s help and blessings in the future.
