The Women’s Guild of the New Orleans Opera Association held its first executive board meeting for the 2014-15 season at the Historic Landmark Guild Home in the Garden District.

Former executive board members handed authority to incoming members and discussed plans for the upcoming year.

Of special note is the planning of the Opera Ball, “Flight of Fancy,” to be held Jan. 17 at the New Orleans Lakefront Terminal.

Another highlight of the coming year will be the Mad Hatter’s Luncheon and Saks Fashion Show on March 10 at the New Orleans Hilton.
