Junior League of Monroe
The Junior League of Monroe held its 2nd annual Mardi Gras Ball on February 5th, 2016. The activities committee, comprised of Cydni Hanks-Chair, Meghan Sharp, Meghan Sellar, Stacey Majure, Ashlie Hennessy, Sarah Cox and Nikki Bolton, brought New Orleans flair to the American Legion Hall. The hall was decked out with Mardi Gras flair from beads, boas, to members floating around in masquerade! The hors d’oeuvres would make any Cajun palate smile, from Natchitoches meat pies to king cake and Marsala Beverage provided beer for the event. League members danced the night away to tunes from the Mike McKenzie band. A special treat this year was an appearance by the Krewe of Janus royal court. They were great fun and an added extra lagniappe to the Mardi Gras celebration!
