Captains Message - July 2014
You wanted to start the year off with a bang and what a bang we had. The theme for Gemini XXVI was revealed at the Announcement party on June 28th at the Supper Club, Gemini Presents Rhythm and Romance. It was a great event enjoyed by all who attended, over 200. Great food, Great Music, Great friends! I would like to thank our Party Chair, Angela Brakeville and all those who volunteered for such a fun theme announcement party.
Our second Cocktails with the Captain was held at Twisted Root and was another huge success. Thanks to Tammy Rhodes for making arrangements and all of our members and guests for attending.
By the time you receive this newsletter floats are being painted, our bead orders have been turned into the bead chair and another step to the greatest parade for the Ark-La-Tex is well under way.
Now for the coronation, a great night is being planned for August 2nd at the Horseshoe Riverdome. We are another week closer, invitation have been received and we are awaiting the RSVP's. Please get those reply cards in the mail to us quickly. Float Lieutenants remember your float is responsible for auction items so please don't wait until the last minute.
I want to say thank you to each krewe member who has stepped up to help with our events. I am so honored to have such a wonderful support group, you are the best, my family of Gemini.
I hope to see everyone at our next CWC and looking forward to the reveal of the last secret, Gemini XXVI Royalty.
