ONE - INTRODUCTIONS:
Attending this meeting: Bettie Biggs, Ed Biggs, Jennifer Walker, John Cashen, Kitty Harris, Cheryl Gordon, Ken Gordon, Tim Leslie, Channie Leslie, Jeremy Andrews, Clayton Bellamy.
Membership: The paid membership was corrected to thirteen paid members. Jennifer Walker has been a fully paid member of the Krewe of several months, but Ken’s been slow noting that. Five yard penalty! We have 13 paid Inaugural Members so far. These are: Cheri Anderson, Peter Anderson, John Cashen, Pamela Clifford, Ken Gordon, Cheryl Gordon, Michelle Gordon, Laura Gordon, Kevin Gordon, Lynn Morgan, Shelby Simms, Cheryl Twickler and Jennifer Walker.
Float Coordination: Lynn Morgan is the person to approve float designs and more importantly, she coordinates the titles of floats. Remember the theme is “Mardi Gras Around the World”.
Judge: Bettie Biggs is Supreme Judge. Rather than concerns about trophies, she informs us of a need for the written invitation on Krewe Of Mask Letterhead. Ken said he’d do that and she can edit it to what’s appropriate.
Lieutenants / Unit Coordinators: Nikki Reed (LIM), LaSwann Beasley (Al-Karin Temple #242), Pamela Clifford (Lt without portfolio), Kittie Wooliscroft (LIFE), Jim Dunn (Twin Cedars).
Kittie says she wants one of the LIFE students to be the Lt.
