NEA BIG READ STARTS TODAY!!

Our kick-off event is a Roaring 20s Mardi Gras Party tonight, February 28, at the Senior Center from 5:00-7:00pm. Mayor Bob Kirkham, dressed as the town crier, will start with a city proclamation, designating March as NEA Big Read Month. Enjoy a feast of crayfish, shrimp, corn, and potatoes cooked by our Cajun Crew. Top the evening off with Vivian's traditional King Cake (you might be the lucky one who gets the baby in their piece of cake - that means good luck for the year!) Enjoy jazz music while you dine and before you leave be sure to take to the "dance floor" for a photo op.
