I found this quote on Pinterest and thought it was so appropriate. We have a month packed full of events and what better time to “make memories” with your friends. Our “Parties “n More” chairs have planned a Scavenger Hunt for early February and if it is anything like the Road Rally then it is sure to be a fun filled afternoon. We also have a TGIF planned for late February so bring your favorite cocktail, beer or wine and share the evening with your fellow Newcomers. Of course there are multiple opportunities to eat, drink and be merry with Winers, Adv in Lunch, our monthly luncheon, various dining groups and don’t forget about the many opportunities to play games, discuss a book, take in a movie, make crafts, etc. Of course, February brings Valentine’s day,
President’s day and locally Gasparilla with its many festivities. Being raised in Mobile, Alabama, February is usually the start of Mardi Gras. I am going to share a bit of
information with you that I would bet few of you know. Mardi Gras actually started in Mobile. The first Mardi Gras was celebrated in 1703, just a year after the city was founded. Mobile introduced it to New Orleans years later. The French explorer Pierre Le Moyne d’Iberville first introduced Mardi Gras to the area in 1699, after he sailed into the Gulf of Mexico on March 6th (Fat Tuesday). He set up camp on the area and named it Point de Mardi Gras, in honor of the holiday which had been celebrated in Paris since the Middle Ages. I hope you all have a wonderful month. Go out there and make some memories.
