Captains Message - December 2014

Captain Bernie Bitting

My Gemini Family,

As the year comes to an end I would like to take a step back to look at a few highlights of 2014.

The year started with our annual Mardi Gras Mass sponsored by the Manno Family with all the Ark La Tex Mardi Gras krewes coming together to begin the Mardi Gras Season and then we moved to 12th night to introduce royalty to the Ark La Tex for a grand celebration.  Gemini welcomed twenty five years of success through our grand bal and parade and ended the season with bridge closing ceremony with those attending receiving ashes to begin Lent.  Although we promote a history of fun with Gemini, we begin and end our celebration with a tradition of all the krewe's coming together, what a rich heritage we have. 

August was a special month where the royalty secret was finally revealed to Gemini, our coronation.  For me, it was the honor of introducing Gemini XXVI royalty.  What a great group we have representing our krewe this year.

Thanks to one young man, we had the opportunity to come together as a krewe family and send special treats to our military as a small thank you for their service to our country.  Who would have ever thought, a box of Hostess Twinkies would make a difference?

Next, a fabulous turnout for our New Orleans trip, almost 100 krewe members parading down Bourbon Street proudly representing us, the Krewe of Gemini.  Thank you to Jolene Woods for a wonderful New Orleans event and to those who participated in the weekend of fun.

And now to end 2014, Monday night we will end this year with our Gemini family coming together for our annual Christmas celebration bringing gifts for Toys for Tots and gas cards for Feist-Weiller cancer patients.  Thank you Gemini for ending our year "giving".

I would like to thank all the krewe members who made 2014 a wonderful year for Gemini and I wish each of you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  I look forward to kicking off the Mardi Gras Season on January 3, 2015, until then.....

Merry Christmas Gemini!
