Captains Message - May 2015
First, I would like to thank Captain Bernie Bitting for all of her hard work and success in Gemini XXVI. I would like to salute King Taylor Brown and Queen Judy French and their Dukes and Duchess. I am looking forward to all the great things of Gemini XXVII.
For those of you who don’t know me, here is my brief profile; I lived in Utah for most of my childhood for school, but returned to Bossier for high school. I am employed with Doctors Lab. I married my wonderful husband, Chris, in 1995. We have 3 children: Whitney (23) Princess in 2008, Kristie (17) Princess 2013 and Christopher (15) Prince 2016. This is my 13th year as a member of Gemini. I was a Float Lieutenant for 9 years, served as Party Chairman, Royalty Chairman, 12th Night Chair, Duchess of Louisiana XVIII, and I have served as a consort on 3 different occasions. I have been the Museum Director for the last 5 years, and last but not least, past Captain of Gemini XXIV.
I have high expectations for our Krewe this year. I have a great Board and Chairpersons that surround me. We will make a great team.
I hope to see you at “Birthday with the Captain” May 22 downtown at the Red River District at Nikki’s.
Mary Louise Stansell
