February or March??

Ok…just to clear up any confusion…MardiCrawl 2015 is on FEBRUARY 21ST, 2015  The posts you see as you scroll the page about it being in March are from MardiCrawl 2014, when we were forced to push it out to March because of the dredging of Shem Creek.  There has been NO date change for 2015.  Sorry for any confusion!!!!

Drumroll, please

MardiCrawl 2014 Date Change

It was NOT an easy decision to make, but the LCPHC has decided to change the date of the 2014 MardiCrawl from February 22 to MARCH 22.

The US Army Corps of Engineers will be dredging Shem Creek for the next several weeks, and their schedule will have their barges, cranes, etc. directly in the vicinity of several of our venues on or about February 22.  We thought we would be able to make some changes and work around it, but more information came to light as to the magnitude of the disruption, not to mention the noise this project will create.  (They will be working 7 days a week until completion).  While they MAY be completed by the Feb 22nd date, it was just too close to call, and we simply couldn’t chance it.

Our first priority (along with our charities) are our attendees.  We want everyone to have fun, and enjoy all that our venues offer, and this project would severely impact that on various levels.

We hope you will join us for our rescheduled “Party With a Purpose”!!!


Happy Thanksgiving from the LCPHC!!

As we gather with family and friends today to give thanks for all we have, it also marks the beginning of the Christmas season. Please don’t forget those less fortunate as you shop the “brown Thursday” and “black Friday” sales…especially the kids who may not have Christmas at all through no fault of their own! Also, don’t forget that while Toys for Tots and many charities collect MANY gifts for the younger kids, many donate to kids up to 18 years old, and are often “short” on gifts for the “teen/tween” set. Here’s a list that one of the LCPHC members built last year with help from her students of things to donate for the “tween/teen”set

(Club members, please don’t forget we will be making a donation to Toys for Tots at our December 17th meeting!!)
