Tobacco Ball closes out Clarksville’s bicentennial celebration

SoVaNow.com / December 05, 2018


Clarksville residents celebrated in high style Saturday night as the town’s year-long bicentennial celebration draws to a close.

Nearly 200 people packed the Clarksville Community Center for an evening of dining and dancing at the Clarksville Bicentennial Tobacco Ball. Capping off the evening of dining and dancing was the surprise announcement of Mildred Jolly as Tobacco Queen.

In 1941, Jolly represented Mecklenburg County on the Queen’s Court during the last Tobacco Festival held in the Commonwealth. It is said to have drawn 165,000 visitors to the Town of South Boston.

Jolly will ride in the Clarksville Christmas parade on Friday, and she will be joined by this year’s Tobacco Ball Princess, Betty Gould.

Heather Hite and Ann Redd, organizers of the ball, thanked the members of the Bicentennial Committee for their work on the events staged throughout the year. Cooper’s Landing Inn and Traveler’s Tavern provided the evening’s food, The Lamplighter Restaurant supplied the beverages, and Feature Attraction Band was the evening’s entertainment.
