Captains Message - October 2014
My Gemini Family,
The season of Coronations has come to a close, congratulations to all the Krewes, their Captains, Kings, Queens and Royal Court. Everything is in place and we now move forward to our Grand Bals and Parades. Mardi Gras in North Louisiana is in full force and rolling, find your seat, buckle-up and enjoy the ride, I promise it will be a fun one.
As my twin grandsons sang Saturday morning Rain, Rain Go Away and as hard as they sang we tried but it didn't happen for our Fall Flambeau/Captain's Reception. We have rescheduled for Sunday, November 9th at the den from 11 am until. I invite all members to attend this family event. You don't want to miss out on fabulous gumbo. The cooks promise great burgers, sausage and hot dogs. Past Captains promise ice cold beer and soft drinks, For kid fun, bounce house, face painting and inflatable twister. So come hungry and enjoy a relaxed but fun day with our krewe.
I would like to thank everyone who attended Cocktails with the Captain at Zocolo's last month. It was a great success and I cannot say thank you enough. Easter Seals Louisiana would like to thank both Krewe of Gemini and Zocolo's, we appreciate those special partnership with companies and social organizations like yours. Our next Cocktails with the Captain will be at Anvil's, more information is forthcoming from Tammy for our October CWC.
Don't forget about our annual bead trip to New Orleans the weekend of November 14th-16th. If you have not made your hotel reservations at the Crown Astor Hotel on Canal & Bourbon it may be too late. Please let us know your plans to attend and if you still need a room. If you made reservations and cannot attend please do not cancel your reservations, let Jolene know we have krewe members wanting to join the fun for the weekend and rooms are scarce. We do need a head count of those making the trip so we can prepare accordingly, not only for the restaurant on Friday night, but for the brass band second line procession down Bourbon Street. The NOPD would also like the number participating in the event to accommodate security for us accordingly. Please let Jolene know your participation.
See you at the general membership meeting!
Captain, Gemini XXVI
