Some people think Mardi Gras is a short season before Lent and Easter... Oh, no!!! Mardi Gras activities happen year round here in the SBC and I'm just the girl to tell you about them! Also, as a member of the Krewe of Atlas, I want to invite you to the Krewe of Atlas Around the World Party Saturday, May 21st at Camp Forbing on Ellerbe Road. It's our annual membership drive and it's a fantastic time! Keep watching for more details!
