November 2020 Newsletter

: LaMora Simpson


I can’t believe it’s almost Thanksgiving. I miss being with all my Ennead friends!! Halloween was destroyed by the pandemic, but I am optimistic that we will soon be able to gather again.

The Ennead board of directors met November 2nd and we have firmed up our annual dues structure for the coming (2021) year, which is really a continuation for Carnival Memphis year 2020. As a reminder dues in 2020 were $295.00.

The dues established the upcoming year will be $235 and is reduced in part because we will not have a coronation in 2021, per Carnival Memphis.

The Grand Krewe of Ennead 2021 dues are as follows:

1.) Returning current active members that paid for 2020 dues will have a chance to renew for 2021 at a reduced rate of $100 per member if paid in full by January 31, 2021 (that will make them $135). If not paid by January 31, 2021 the membership will be in the amount of $235.00  (This amount is reduced because of the curtailed events in 20-21.)

2.) New members may join the Grand Krewe of Ennead for the year of 2021 for $235.00.

3). Married/Coupled Ennead Alumni (ennots) may join in the year of 2021 for $335.00 per couple. For that membership they will have full admission to all Ennead events except those that have a guest fee. For each event that has a guest fee, they will have one paid admission. If both wish to attend, one will pay the current guest fee.

This seems to be a fair adjustment to our current dues structure and we look forward to welcoming everyone back and new members joining us.

We will be starting up some more events soon. On November 14th we have planned to have a grand Happy Hour at Delta Blues winery. You won’t want to miss this event, because we hope to SOUP this one up!!.. Watch your newsletter for the updates.. Also, look at that newsletter because many of our pop-ups and small group gathering are detailed there and that is the best place to stay current on Ennead events. We are working on having a Christmas and New Years event, so again, keep watching and we will post the information here. A quick word of thanks for all the small group leaders that have opened their homes or taken the time to plan opportunities for us to get together.

Art Gallery:

A couple goes to an art gallery. They find a picture of a naked women with only her privates covered with leaves. The wife doesn’t like it and moves on but the husband keeps looking. The wife asks: “What are you waiting for?” The husband replies: “Autumn.”
