Something old, something new, and always over the top! Super Saturday is an Ensworth tradition dating back to the '60s, and we don’t doubt these amazing committee chairs are going to uphold the time-honored tradition, while also making it their own, and full of FUN! Laughter and joy await us all in the coming weeks, thanks to these leading ladies…let’s get to know them a bit and extend our gratitude for their efforts.
