I enjoyed judging the Mardi Gras parade at The Village of Baytowne Wharf on Tuesday. Loads of fun. I saw Charles and Robin Wiesneth, Tresha Brown, Donna Burgess, Connie Yarbro, Bob and Carol Saucier, and Alden Lagasse there. The king cake from KaraBoo Bakery was delectable.

Last Sunday was full of activity in South Walton.

The day kicked off with the Seaside School Half Marathon & 5K Run at 7 a.m. Jimbo Holloway, Kelly Buzzett, Shaye Smith, Stephanie Burke, Wendy Morgan, Carol Stovski, Michelle Fillingim, and Sharon Thompson were some locals who completed the race. It was Jimbo's first.

That afternoon, The Village of Baytowne Wharf hosted its Mardi Gras Parade for dogs, which got a mention in the Birmingham News. David and Judi Bludworth, Carol and Bob Saucier, Joyce Hoye, Kris Johnson, Connie Yarbro, and James Murray were some who attended.

While Jon and Teri Vice went to Mardi Gras in Mobile, Andrew and Jennifer McAlexander, Malayne and Robert DeMars, and Patrick and Christi Ferry let the good times roll at Mardi Gras in New Orleans.

Before the race and the dogs, John Stasko celebrated the one-year anniversary of having a new knee with a small cocktail party at his Gulf Place home. Bob Johnson, Gena and Ron Bolton, Ron Green and Lisa Morris, Bev and Greg Schmitt, Keith and RoseAnn Knight, Earl and Carol Foster, Wally and Shirley Weisenborn enjoyed last Friday night.

I hear that last weekend's Emerald Coast Children Advocacy Center's Kieran May Memorial Golf & Gala Weekend was a huge success. Geoff McBride was presented with the Kieran May Award for his work for child abuse victims. Amy Rogers, Michael Thompson, Cory Fosdyck, Jim and Tammy Pierce, Tom and Dana Saffel, and Hank White were some who attended.
