“March On”

As you’ve noticed, we’ve not had very many pictures over the past few days (weeks).  Well, that “ain’t” the case today!  Yesterday was our Mardi Gras Parade, Luncheon, and Chair Auction.  So, here ya go – a photo tour of the events.

The Color Guard and King & Queen lead off the parade

This year’s Mardi Gras theme is Wacky Sports so here’s the Senior Wacky Sports Olympic Team followed by a scooter and lawn mower entry

Instead of horses, we have tractors – they’re a lot easier to clean up after

And then the Marlow Fire Department rounds out the parade

What a lot of fun, especially being that the parade was made up of our friends and neighbors here at Rainbow Plantation.  And, on top of everything else, we hauled in more throws at this parade then we did during the parade at Fairhope.

But, the fun doesn’t stop there ladies and gentlemen – no sireeeee!  The activities move into the clubhouse for a wonderful pulled pork luncheon followed by more shenanigans.

Some of the Rainbow Plantation crafters have been re-caning old chairs and donated them to an auction for the Escapees CARE organization in Livingston, Texas.  They auctioned off 10 chairs and raised $1,250 for CARE – good job y’all.

One last picture – Guess “who dat dare?”
