Several of the wives of OABB members have enjoyed dressing in period costumes when we perform. This has really enhanced our performances and will continue to be an important part of our performances. The Late Mrs. Nancy Hicks was the inspirational leader of our "Ladies of the Regiment", provided a splendid example to the other ladies, and was loved by everyone. We will miss her terribly.
Some women have purchased period clothing while others have made their own. There are lots of sources for such clothing and patterns, with several on-line sources listed elsewhere on this page. Our Ladies are actively involved in a lot of what we do and we occasionally have social activities together.
