Captains Message - November 2014

Captain Bernie BittingHello Gemini Family,

By the time you receive this newsletter our krewe will be in the heart of the big easy, New Orleans for a great time with more celebration of Rhythm & Romance.  This weekend we will be parading, bead shopping, and following the Red Hot Brass Band to dinner. A big “Thank You” to Jolene Woods for a job well done!  Look out New Orleans Gemini is here.  I hope everyone has a GREAT time.  Safe travels everyone to and from New Orleans.   

At the November board meeting representatives from Feist-Weiller Cancer Center presented us their needs.  The board voted to continue with Toys for Tots and to add Feist-Weiller Cancer Center as our second charity.   For Toys for Tots we need you to bring a toy and for our second charity we need our members to help with gas credit cards for those patients who have cancer and need assistance coming and going for treatments.  Thank you Betty King for going more into details offering more information on the many cancer patients that come to our facility from all over the state with little or no money.  Our donation of gas credit cards would be helpful to those patients on their travels for treatment.  Krewe family for our November general meeting the board asks that you begin bringing gas credit cards and toys.  If you cannot make our November general membership meeting don't worry, you can bring with you to our December meeting.  This meeting will be our Christmas celebration and we will have representative from Toys for Tots attend to collect all the toys and Feist-Weiller Cancer Center to collect all the gas credit cards for the cancer patients. Both Toys for Tots and Feist-Weiller Cancer Center also accept monetary donations if you would rather give in that manner.

November is such a special month for all of us.  I want to say THANK YOU to all the veterans in our krewe.  Thank you for your service to our country and the freedom we have today.  This month is also a time to give thanks.  So as you sit down to that beautiful Thanksgiving table with family gathered around, please remember why we celebrate this holiday.

My Thanksgiving wish to you and your family!thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is here, so our minds have turned
To what time has taught us, to what we've learned:
We often focus all our thought
On shiny things we've shopped and bought.
We take our pleasure in material things,

Forgetting the pleasure that friendship brings.
If a lot of our stuff just vanished today,
We'd see the foundation of each happy day
Special relationships, constant and true,

That's when my thoughts go directly to you.
I wish you a Thanksgiving you'll never forget,
Full of love and joy—your best one yet!
 

Happy Thanksgiving, see you at the general membership meeting

Bernie Bitting,
Captain, Gemini XXVI
