The Initiation Ball is the first event held by the Bachelor-Benedict Club each fiscal year. Usually held in February, attendance at this formal affair is limited to members and their ladies. The members are required to wear their red ribbons properly slanted across their chests as evidence of their membership. This is the only “closed” affair of the social year.
During this occasion the newly elected officers and new members are introduced to the membership. Newly inducted members are presented with their red ribbons, which are pinned on by their respective sponsor. They also each receive a copy of the by-laws, membership pins and card.
