Krewe staged its annual parade through the streets of New Orleans with a theme of “The Master Story Tellers.” The Krewe ended its parade with an extravaganza party at the Superdome, where it was entertained by a series of music entertainers, including Donna Summer and “Kool and the Gang.” The parade was led by the Krewe’s honored guests, Jonathon Silverman, star of “The Single Guy,” and Daphnie Zuniga, star of “Melrose Place.”
In the tradition of the Krewe of Endymion, each Maid was beautifully costumed with an elaborate headdress to carry out the theme of the parade. Miss O’Gorman portrayed the character, “Scheherazade” from Antoine Gal-lard’s legendary “Arabian Nights.”
Miss O’Gorman is a student at Randolph Macon Women’s College. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Keith O’Gorman of San Antonio and the granddaughter of Mrs. Virginia Law, also of San Antonio, and Mr. and Mrs. Tommy O’Gorman of New Braunfels.

While Smith was a sophomore at Canyon High School in 1994, he inquired at the Parks and Recreation office whether the department needed someone to do a project which would qualify for the Eagle Scout Award. David Whatley, the parks director at that time, directed him to Dolores Schumann, Guada Coma Garden Club Arboretum co-chairman, who was writ
ing a brochure and growing guide for the Landa Park Arboretum.
Schumann was looking for someone to do the word processing. The garden club’s budget for the new brochure did not contain money to have it done professionally.
When Smith contacted Schumann, she said she really did not know what to think. Here was this young man, who could not drive a car, volunteering his time and his scout troop to do the work. The brochure was a $13,500 project and the visions of the brochure were likened to a printed book.
Schumann showed Smith the format she wanted and gave him a tree text and Smith went home. The next day, Smith returned with a perfect format. Schumann knew she had the right

Figuring the cost of the single admission tickets to all entertainments the amount vould run up to over $8.00....There are a few men and women in this town who have worked hard every year to get Chautauqua here, without any reward whatever for their work but the satisfaction thatthey are helping the community by bringing talent here, that only people in big cities have an opportunity to hear and see...A certain sum has to be guaranteed to bring Chautauqua to our town which the subscribers have to bring up by selling tickets, or they have to pay a deficit, and we can help to easily get this sum together by buying season tickets from the committee, as every cent taken in at the gates goes to the Chautauqua people besides the guaranteed sum, so let us all get behind the committee and buy our season tickets from them, or this may be our last Chautauqua.
