Thanks to our King David Kelley for arranging use of the Shrine’s float and providing Irish music and to all who joined in the festivities by decorating, participating, and providing food and drink for the occasion. Everyone was Irish on that day!
We are in the heart of Carnival Season, gearing up for Carnival Memphis’ major fundraising event of the year: Krewes for Kids on April 28. As we enjoy all the celebrations of the season, we want to keep in mind the three children’s charities we are supporting this year: Agape Child and Family Services, Inc.; Emmanuel Center; and Memphis Athletic Ministries. While the members of Ennead’s Royal Court are our primary representatives at these events, we are all welcome and encouraged to participate.
Phoenix Karaoke is April 7 at the Zaman Grotto in north Mississippi. Although none claim to be singers, your Royalty have been practicing at David Kelley’s studio and will be enthusiastically “Twistin’ the Night Away” at that event.
rehearsing. Many many thanks to Carol Wasielewski and LaMora Simpson for their leadership and to Karen Mora for once again providing us with a practice venue. Come to both events and support your krewe!
March began with a lively happy hour at the Butcher Shop, quickly followed by Rummikub at the home of Mike Lanthier. Sally Gentry hosted this month’s wine party, Ladies gathered at Anne Manning’s, and Poker players brought their change to the home of LaMora Simpson and Charles Humphreys. The Dinner Group sampled the fare at Soul Fish, and Go Karters and Readers enjoyed their monthly gatherings. Bill McMurtray brought culture to our group by
organizing an outing to The Drowsy Chaperone at Theatre Memphis.
Ennead offers so many opportunities for fellowship each month – more than any other krewe. Please reach out to our newer or less active members and encourage them to join us as we take advantage of the spring weather just around the corner. And invite your single friends to consider joining Ennead…the only krewe just for singles!
