Gemini XXVI Royalty


Congratulations to a GREAT group who will represent Gemini royally! 

I am still very thrilled about another awesome Gemini Coronation which was certainly beyond my expectations.  I would like to personally thank the one and only Angela Brakeville for another outstanding Gemini Party.  Hear! Hear! to everyone who was involved over the past several months with the planning and preparations for Gemini's 26th Coronation, including our Floats for the wonderful job you did assembling your silent auction items.  Speaking of silent auction, Angela, you out did yourself on the auction!  Thanks to Patti Pernici for your help to make this year's auction one of the best.  Special thanks to John & Lynn Manno, Jr. for the gift of a LSU ticket package and with that package our princes & princesses raised $2000 in a matter of ten minutes for the krewe. WOW!  The hard work of all involved was apparent to all who attended; it was truly an outstanding event.  I have received numerous to many to mention by names of how great the event was.  So, for all the hard work, those who donated auction items, those who helped decorate and those who worked the night of coronation, I Thank You!

I would like to congratulation our 2014 Dave Michels annual Captain Award winner Chris Keenan. It was my honor to add Chris's name to the Dave Michels Annual Captain's Award plaque.  Truly a plaque of Gemini giants who have not only help set our course, but have certainly changed the face of Gemini.  Thank you for the sacrifices, dedication and contributions Chris you have given the Krewe of Gemini.

Cocktails with the Captain is set for Fud's on 70th Street.  Tammy Rhodes and Paula Pendleton, one of the Fud's managers and krewe member on title float has a great evening planned with food, drink specials and karaoke, please come out and enjoy a fun filled evening of camaraderie with your Gemini family.

Hope to see you all soon...
