Workshop Tomorrow Saturday April 6, 2-5 p.m.: Organize the new storage unit

We’re so excited to have all of our stuff moved into our big new storage unit at 3900 Tchoupitoulas, Public Storage Unit #2 (map). Now it’s time to organize it. Park in the small parking lot out front and then come through the security gate if it’s open.  If the gate isn’t already open, our unit is very close to the security gate, so you’ll probably be able to see and holler to someone so we can open the gate for you, or call Captain Antoinette’s cell (504-717-1451).

Many thanks to our parade marshall Rafael Monzon, Chris Caravella, Thomas Lemoine, Terri Wilkinson, Irwin Langhoff, and Rich and Judy Helm and anyone else who helped with the various stages of this move, and to Rich and Judy Helm who donated money for the new costume racks, locks, lights, truck rental, and other supplies to set up the new space.

Save the Dates!!!!

  • Wednesday May 8 at 7 p.m., Beauregard Keyes House:  We’ll celebrate the anniversary of Joan’s victory day at Orléans with our annual post-parade photo and video watch party and debrief, and we’ll also have a short member meeting to elect the board. 
  • Thursday May 30 will be our annual prayer service and party in honor of the Feast Day (death day) of Saint Joan of Arc. We’ll have the service in the St. Mary’s Chapel at the Old Ursuline Convent and then make a short progression over to lay flowers at the Joan of Arc statue.
  • Prospective members welcome — bring a friend!
