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 - April 2014
It is ironic that sometimes things are just meant to work certain ways. In the past eleven months we have been without a Captain-Elect, and we were not sure who would lead us for Gemini XXVI. Just like the blue skies came out prior to our parade, at the eleventh hour a candidate came forward. It is someone I have known for over fifteen years, Bernie Bitting.
Bernie has served on the Board for the Krewe of Gemini, was on my royalty court for Gemini X and has been a member of the Krewe since 1995. She is very well qualified to be the Krewe’s next Captain. She has been the head of the local March of Dimes, along with the Easter Seals Foundation, and has many years of experience in all aspects of volunteer organizations. Please help me welcome her as your Captain for Gemini XXVI.
I would like to thank Bernie and her group for providing a great golf tournament at the Shreveport Country Club last week. I would also like to thank all of the floats for providing the beverages for the tournament. If you were unable to attend, ask someone about the Fireball hole. Good friends, food, drinks and a lot of laughs are a great way to spend a Friday with other Krewe members. Please consider playing at the next tournament or putting together a team.
Lastly, I would like to thank Tony Richardson and the riders of Float G along with Jim Waugh and Float R for helping with float prep and drivers for the Holiday in Dixie parade this past weekend.
Thank you Krewe of Gemini for the memories of the past twenty-five years. We are looking forward to the future as we make new memories in the years ahead.
