A Grand Knight for the Arts Lee-Ann Plott The Jubilate Guild's third annual "Knight's Follies" will be held on Saturday, February 26th, but the "Follies" will be fronting a new name. The event has been renamed "Jubilate Knight - A Grand Celebration for the Arts," in order to convey the evening's true light. Last year, the Jubilate Guild received feedback that 'Follies' portrayed a different event than what the Guild held.
