Re: Sparta....OMG

My Dear Friends..........

OMG..............Let's say that again........OMG !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What a parade !!!!!!!!!!!!!

The night.......perfect - The Floats......perfect - The bands.........perfect - The King, Queen, and Court.........perfect - The Krewe........PERFECT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We had the largest krewe, the largest crowd, the most marching bands, and the most beautiful night in Sparta history !!!!!!!

So many people to thank (and I know that we will forget a few......so please forgive us and know that you are certainly appreciated)............
Our wonderful float builder, Phil Fricano - Our costume designer, Courtney Dusang - Our costumer, Sally Hedrick - Our Parade Chairmen - The NOPD - The Fire Dept. - N.O EMS - and the wonderful People of New Orleans who came out in droves to see us..........

I, as Captain, want to thank the "Best Officers in Carnival", the Officers of Sparta....and their Ladies (and certainly my First Lady and my Family).  The dedication, energy, enthusiasm, time, and talent that these gentlemen and ladies give to Sparta each year is staggering.  I am honored to be associated with them........and deeply grateful to call them my friends........

I want to thank King Phillip and Queen Maddy....and their entire Court and Court Families.  What a wonderful and fun-loving group you have been.

And most of all.......I want to thank the Members of Sparta and their families.  Without you we would not be "The Knights of Sparta" !!!!!!!

I am already looking forward to 2016....and all of the fun.

Happy Mardi Gras from (and to) The Knights of Sparta............

Best..............

"Palmam Qui Meruit Ferat"
(The "Thankful to be a Part of Sparta" Captain) and the Officers of The Knights of Sparta
