Please come out and join us on Saturday for the Float Social Fun Decorating day!!! If you would like to provide something to eat after we’ve painted, decorated, laughed, drank, and had fun please let me know ASAP so I don’t make other arrangements.

One last thing, it is never too early to start asking (begging) for Safety Walkers. The requirements for safety walkers are as follows; they need to be 18+ years and they cannot drink while walking. This is always a good way to introduce potential new members to the Krewe. If you know someone or some group, let me know. Keep in mind, there is a maximum and minimum number of safety walkers allowed.
