 A Mardi Gras Poetic Invitation…

Mardi Gras is coming, it’s fast approaching, and so it’s time for fun;

Time for food and celebration, like you’ve never seen it done!

Fat Tuesday soon approaches, that doesn’t leave much time,

So we’ll gather Saturday the 2nd when the moment is sublime.


Ladies wear your fancy dress and heels, and don’t forget a mask,

Men dress up to “hit” the town, do you feel up to the task??!

The glimmer, the swank, it’s not complete without a cocktail and wine;

The food prepared, a Creole affair, will add to the smashing good time!


This Masquerade is the first of it’s kind, in Vernonia, our little town,

But the band, the music, food and friends will help us all to get “down”!

Put your dancing shoes on to celebrate, Cedar Ridge is where we’ll be,

We can’t wait to see you there, you won’t want to miss this party!
