Mardi Gras Fais Do-Do...Done!

What a lively evening it was at the Union Arts Council's Mardi Gras Fais Do-Do on Feb. 8.  Great music by the fabulously talented Sarah Jayde and the "Sharecroppers" Cajun band and great food by Joe and Susan Cusimano  got the audience happy, happy, happy, and up on their feet dancing.

Two tables were filled with silent auction items that enticed people to bid like crazy.  The final tally of silent auction sales:  $500.  

Thanks to EVERYONE who helped out with the event, attended, talked it up around the community, or donated auction items.
