Krewe of Kingfish Presents Program at Recent Rotary Meeting

It was Ash Wednesday, the day following Fat Tuesday (or Mardi Gras) when the Rotary Club of Winnfield heard a presentation on the efforts of the local Krewe of Kingfish to keep the spirit of Mardi Gras alive and well here in this north Louisiana community.

Rotarian Jane Purser had the program and it was she and her husband Don who chaired the committee that first brought Mardi Gras and the Krewe of Kingfish to Winnfield in 1993. That was the year that the city celebrated the 100th birthday of hometown celebrity Huey P. Long. Fellow Rotarian Samantha Kelly who now serves on the Krewe of Kingfish brought the presentation to the club.
