Mardi gras Ball

What a special night. Elders from The Courtyard met other elders from Signature homes at the Chautauqua House in Defuniak Springs for a masked Mardi Gras Ball. Members of the Krewe de Yak were on hand to greet elders as they entered. They also served as our guest speaker and judges. Our meal consisted of traditional New Oreland’s dishes, and dancers from the Ecole de danse Studio performed for us. Mrs. Hinson stated “I feel like I’m dressed for the Academy Awards or something!”  The highlight of their night came when their centerpiece won first place. Each of the Elders were presented with a gift basket filled with special treats. On the way home Mrs. Ann said “who would have thought I would have to go to a retirement home to experience a night like this.”
