Welcome to the Krewe of Gemini
The Krewe of Gemini is the first parading Krewe in modern times in Shreveport and Bossier City, Louisiana. The Krewe of Gemini is a nonprofit volunteer organization including folks from all walks of life who enjoy promoting the Mardi Gras spirit in the area. We would like to extend an invitation to you to be a part of this great organization. Our Den is located at 2101 East Texas St. in Bossier City, Louisiana.
Captains Message - October2015
It’s hard to believe it’s Fall, seems like Summer still. Our floats are painted and they look great. The new Duke and Duchess floats turned out wonderful.
We had the Annual Golf Tournament on the 10th. Congratulations to our 3- way-tie winners. They didn’t want to do a playoff so they just split all the winnings. Bob Dempsey/ Ted Teal, Patrick Gallagher/D. Fulco and Mark Baker/E.C. Latch. We couldn’t have asked for a better day for golf and hanging with friends. I want to thank all the sponsors of the tournament, the hole sponsors and helpers. The food was great and the beer was cold. A lot of work goes into putting on a tournament and it’s even harder when you don’t have full participation. So thank you again to everyone that helped support the golf tournament and Krewe. I would like to especially thank my husband “King” Chris, he is the one that had to listen to me and without a doubt he came through again for this Krewe, and we exceeded my budgeted goal!!
We have the New Orleans trip coming up on the 13th of November; I will not have a Captain’s Reception this year, due to the lack of participation. However, we will have Cocktails with the Captain, Friday the 13th in the bar of the Crowne Astor. Hope to see you there around 6pm. I would love to buy you a drink for making the trip to New Orleans. The Bead shopping will still take place for those who would like to go.
As most of you know, we have had a Duke and Duchess party every year that the Krewe is invited to, hosted by the Dukes and Duchess in honor of the King and Queen. To help with the growing expense of the Royalty we will not have this party this year. The Dukes and Duchess have decided to have a private party for the Captain, King and Queen this year.
Please bring your Raffle tickets and money to the Krewe meeting on Monday.
Reminder, the November Board meeting will be on Wednesday November the 11th @ 5:30pm. Hope to see you in New Orleans.
