Captains Message - September 2014

Captain Bernie Bitting

Gemini Family,

What a year!  Your royalty has been busy representing you at all the coronations.  We are on the downhill run now, only three more to go.  Each of the coronations have been unique in their own way and fun visiting with each krewe. 

I am going to stop, take a deep breath and get ready for more Gemini fun.  Our fall flambeau/Captain's Reception will take place on October 11th from 1 pm until at the den.  Food, a keg of beer, Gemini Family and fun for all to enjoy.  I know LSU will be playing the Florida Gators that day and game time is yet to be announced but not to worry Gemini, we will have television for you to watch the game. For food preparation please RSVP your attendance, also number of children to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or call 868-5910 and leave a message. 

And coming up...our annual bead trip to New Orleans which is the weekend of November 14th-16th.  . We have hired a brass band and there will be a second line procession from the hotel (Crown Astor) down Bourbon Street to the restaurant (Court of Two Sisters). We must have an RSVP for the New Orleans trip for the New Orleans Police Department. This is in addition to the Room reservations.  For those who will be joining us for dinner please get in contact with Jolene Woods.

Cocktails with the Captain is set for September 30th at Zocolo's.  I am extremely excited about this CWC.  Zocolo's will be donating 10% of their proceeds on food and drinks to Easter Seals Louisiana.  This money will help Easter Seals purchase more wheelchairs, walkers, build needed ramps and many other needs for someone with disabilities.  Please come out and enjoy a fun filled evening of camaraderie with your Gemini brethren all while helping a charity.

Reminder: be sure to bring those Twinkies to our general membership meeting, Monday, September 15th.  Mayor Lo Walker, Channel 12, Shreveport Times, Bossier Press Tribune and The Forum will be at our meeting.  Come see what it is all about!

See you all soon...
