Mardi Gras Fun at the Monastery

The dining room was decorated New Orleans style, and on the tables were hats, masks, beads, and treats!  Thus began another evening of the annual celebration hosted by the Benedictine Health System whom our Community sponsors.  The real challenge came in deciding which pizza to choose as there were innumerable varieties—all of which are delectable and mouthwatering.  There were also various drinks, salads, and desserts.  Music, original and familiar, was provided by Lauren Burton.   It was another memorable Mardi Gras evening of sharing with old and new friends.

Thank you, BHS!
