Socials

GLPA has several Saturday night "socials" throughout the year where members can bring spouses or significant others and join in an evening of fun, food and frivolity. Most often there is a theme for the evening - Halloween, Home Sweet Home (pj's were encouraged), the 1950s, etc.



Mardi Gras Swing Party
February 25, 2017 recap of the party


Chris Germain, MNEC, our hostess for the evening with help of Dana Hoffman, MNEC decorated the hall in purple and green with streamers, balloons, masks, feathers and crowns. The table cloths were green and each table had a wine glass centerpiece with a purple mask, feathers and loads and loads of beads. Everyone was able to take some beads and wear them without any tasks to perform or body parts to show. Chris had given me a tiara to wear which I paired with purple boas, as I am the Queen after all and she had voodoo top hat with feathers. Jake Mosser and Walter Losee each had straw hats on and Dottie Beaudoin had a fancy mask with a huge black feather. Denise Benavides on the other hand had a very tiny tiny little hat on her head which though purple was hardly worth wearing. Jake also had on an appropriate skull head shirt in pink and purple.

The night started out with appetizers of cheese, salsa, chips and lots of shrimp, then Chef Dave Parsons, MNEC, with the assistance of sous chef John McGrath cooked us up a meal fit for a Mardi Gras King. The menu had some spice in the food and for those who wanted more you could add ‘Slap Your Momma Seasoning’ to the Creole vegetables –which were just little trees of various kinds with a few small ears of corn, smoked sausage, seasoned chicken, jambalaya shrimp and tasty corn bread. The food was delight and plentiful, enough to feed a small army with takeout containers for everyone to have left over’s.

We had a great trivia game on the city of New Orleans and Mardi Gras itself put together by Barbara Rozavsky, HonNEC. The winning table got bragging rights and lottery tickets. Barbara also worked her magic with the music for the evening-blues, zidigo and jazz.

Desserts for the night started with a Mardi Gras King Cake flown in directly from Joe Gambinos Bakery in New Orleans, and added to the desert table were .lemon cookies, pies, cakes and a rum chocolate trifle.The baby in the King’s cake was found by Brenda Driscoll who also got a lottery ticket and the right to take over my Queens position for the rest of the night. Dave Parsons, MNEC took a great shot of Jake with his phone – please see below. I loaned him my boa for part of the party.
