Captains Message - June 2015
Summer has started and Gemini has a new theme “Mardi Gras Magic”. I would like to thank Donna Poimboeuf for all of her hard work to insure we would have a wonderful Theme Announcement. We had great numbers in attendance, the venue and the food were all excellent. Thank you again, Donna, for another great party. This year’s float themes: Casino Magic, Magic Eight Ball, Jack and the Magic bean stalk, Magic Carpet Ride, Magic Flute, Magic Kingdom, Magic Mike, Magic Mirror, Magic School Bus, Magic Show, Magic Time Machine, Magical Genie, and Puff the Magic Dragon. This year we will wear traditional Mardi Gras Costumes and all have the same mask.
I want to thank everyone that attended the first Cocktails with the Captain. It was a wonderful way to celebrate my birthday. The next CWC will be July 30( location TBA soon).
Lots of work going on down at the den. The new Jester is complete on the Museum and looks wonderful. I would like to thank Larry Earnest for finishing the sides to the entrance of Museum and for the new gutters on the bead building. The duke and duchess floats are just about ready to have cloth attached. I appreciate all that have come down there on Fridays and Saturdays and worked. I encourage all members to come down and lend a hand.
Last month I gave the spirit award to Kaitlyn Garrison. She is truly an inspiration to us all, and thank you Kaitlyn for always making us smile.
Last but not least, I would like to welcome our Captain-elect, David Frye. Please help me in guiding Dave to be our next successful Captain.
