Pirate Patches Available
In the famous words of our Parade Chair, the Fiesta of Five Flags parade is only TWO WEEKS AWAY….. (almost!) For our new members this is a fun filled downtown Pensacola Pirate parade! Since it’s usually pretty hot this time of year we leave the tux’s at home and wear our best (or worst) pirate outfits! Of course making sure we are identifiable by including some kind of Jester apparel!
As a Jester apparel option, some members of the Krewe have opted to purchase the Jester Pirate Patch (Approximately 10 x 11 inches). We only order in a minimum of 8 to receive a bulk purchase discount. The cost is $56 per patch, the vest and sewing are not included. Vests can be purchased on line, or at the Gulf Breeze Flea Market. The vest is not a requirement, some opt to put on a t-shirt or a jacket, however keep in mind all the pirate parades are in the warmer months. These are not required but are fun to have for our Krewe at the annual pirate parades we attend!
To order contact Lynn Feehan at email@example.com

2013 Scholarship Recipient Pens Note to Krewe
Cassidy "Cassie" Gardner, our 2013 $2000 Scholarship recipient, has taken time out to thank the Krewe for her scholarship. She is freshman attending the University of Oklahoma in Norman, OK majoring in Business Administration and Entrepreneurship. Upon graduation she plans on being a wedding planner. The Scholarship Committe had many qualified applicants for the award this year, making the selection dificult but Cassidy seemed to have the perfect mix of personality, perseverance and dedication.
Congratulations again Cassidy and keep up the great work.
