It was easy to mistake 2018 for 1818 on Saturday as many officials and residents donned period garb for Wellington’s Bicentennial Ball. The event was held at Eagles Aerie 2051 and welcomed attendees with live music, fresh food, raffles, and a chance to pick up new clothing celebrating the village’s 200th birthday.
