On Friday, Feb. 28, the DFA will be sponsoring a Mardi Gras event at Fred’s Restaurant. At 7:00 pm there will be a buffet of New Orleans style food. During the evening, there will be a game requiring participants to find the King’s stolen Treasure Box. The winner will be awarded a CASH PRIZE. The Queen will award a prize for the best costume. This will be a ticketed event open to the public. Cost is $15 per person or $25 per couple. Costumes and masks are encouraged. Come dressed as a member of the King’s Court - or whatever you like! Beads, glitter, sequins, and masks are part of the Mardi Gras tradition.
Join in the fun. More details to follow.
We will be advertising for DFA members in the form of “Royal Proclamations,” to be hung on the walls at Fred’s. These will be created to look like scrolls. Wording should not be too lengthy and may bewhimsical and Mardi-Gras associated e.g., Royal Proclamation - Franklin Art & Frameworks is the fa-voured custom picture framer of Kings and Queens - SO SAYETH THE KING. Karen Cobb from Olde Virginia Moulding & Millwork) and Roberta Bowman (from Floor to Ceiling) will be visiting downtown businesses in the next few weeks to show a sample and to ascertain your interest. We are asking for a $5.00 donation to help with costs.
