Captains Message - February 2014
By the time you read this, Gemini’s 25th Grande Bal should be in the history books and the cleanup finished. Noreen Dockendorf and the Ball Committee along with Sue Willis, Royalty Chairman, planned a great event, and I hope you enjoyed it. I also hope your Royalty presented themselves in a manner that each member can be proud of. Please thank each of them for a job well done. Please pass any complaints on to me so I can inform next year’s Captain. Remember you too can be a rock star for the Mardi Gras season.
Now we move on to the final two weeks of our Mardi Gras season. February 26th is our annual Hospital Visit day for our Royalty, Prince and Princesses and Krewe members. I personally have been doing these visits for twenty years, and if you have not participated, you have truly missed a high point of the Mardi Gras season.
February 28th is our float loading party and March 1st will be the largest parade in the history of Gemini. Please welcome the other visiting Krewes as they take part in the 25th Anniversary of Mardi Gras in the Ark-La-Tex.
In closing, please remember we are an all-volunteer organization. Your Board, Committee Chairmen and members, along with your Float Lieutenants, spend months of their time so every single member and guest can enjoy the Mardi Gras season. I thank each of you for spending your time so everyone can enjoy “Throw Me a Memory Mister.”
