Captains Message - March 2015
Well Gemini, one more month before your new journey begins with Gemini XXVII. As we add Gemini XXVI to our history I must say thank you! And my thank you is to everyone who helped no matter how small or how large. It takes all of us to keep a machine working in good proper condition and that you have done.
Our next two meetings are important to each of us, nominations and voting on new board members. This is your board so please plan to attend and vote for YOUR board representatives. This year the members of the nominating committee are Past Captain Russ Friedrich, Betty King, Ray Braniff board members, Susan Kemp and Kristian McCain general membership. If you would like to serve on the board for our krewe for the positions of secretary, treasurer or the two positions for members-at-large please let one of these five people know.
My year as Captain has one final event, our golf tournament at Shreveport Country Club on April 17th. This is a fundraiser for us but somehow it is more fun than fundraiser with surprises throughout the golf course. I ask each float to please have a team or if your float has no golfers you may know someone who plays golf, ask them to form a team and come join us. Our tournament is open to everyone and we (you) could be entertaining a new krewe member or potential sponsor. Volunteers will also be needed for the day, please contact Russ to let him know you can volunteer for the tournament.
Thanks to those who attended Cocktails with the Captain. It was a cold Friday night but members came out to support. Thank you Tammy for another successful CWC. Looking forward to our next one!
Until we meet again!
