Date: Dec 31, 7:30 p.m. - Jan 1, 1:30 a.m.
Join us as we celebrate Fort Benning's centennial with an elegant reception at the Benning Club. Dinner includes Filet Mignon and Lobster Thermidor, and the breakfast buffet includes a variety of your favorites, including omelets, waffles and more.
In 1925, the long awaited, much anticipated completion of Benning Boulevard was cause for celebration! The roadway effectively united Fort Benning and Columbus, making travel between the communities safe and timely. Members of the communities gathered at the Springer Opera House to celebrate the union with a marriage ceremony, of sorts. Once the knot was tied, the officiant intoned, “What the paved road has joined together, let no man put asunder.”
And that was that.
It’s high time we celebrate the union with a reception worthy of the relationship. Fort Benning MWR will host a black-tie reception, the Centennial New Year’s Eve Gala, from 7:30pm December 31 to 1:30am January 1, 2018.
The cost is $195/couple or $100/ticket. Only 400 tickets will be sold. Tickets are nontransferable.
