Ushering in Lent with a party! Mardi Gras (photos coming soon) is a favorite celebration. We had a great turnout for the 2017 Marti Gras on Saturday, February 25th in the Parish Hall
Last year (2016) 48 attended and a wonderful smorgasbord of delicious food was enjoyed. We had many who dressed up for the occasion and we enjoyed some great tunes of Mardi Gras provided by Tempi Steen. Lucy Michael was the host of the event and gave us some interesting facts about the history of Marti Gras. Also, John Robert, who was borne in New Orleans had some wonderful stories growing up attending many parades' and had actually been on floats in the parade. Thanks to everyone who brought wonderful dishes to share and those who helped with setup and cleanup.
