Peering into the 'Crystal Ballroom' ball


The Andover Townsman

---- — The annual Masquerade Ball returned to the Crystal Ballroom at The Town House, aka Old Town Hall, Sunday night.

Andover Community Friends, a nonprofit organization that provides funding to support the mission of The Center at Punchard (formerly the Andover Senior Center) and help foster awareness of the Andover senior community, hosted the costumed evening, which included ballroom dancing to the tunes of DB’s Orchestra.

The event celebrates the Crystal Ballroom that was an institution in Andover until the 1950s. In 2010, “The Crystal Ballroom at the Townhouse” was revived as a collaboration between local organizations for the benefit of the town and to offer another option for evening entertainment in Andover.
