Mardi Gras in Galveston

Former NAFUSA Executive Director Ron Woods and his wife, Patty, invited current Executive Director Rich Rossman and his wife, Patty, to the 2013 Mardi Gras celebration in Galveston, Texas. On Friday, February 8th, they joined 1400 others at the special party for The Momus Royal Court at “Jazz! Jazz! Jazz! Mardi Gras”, where the entertainment included Kool & The Gang. They were joined by Ed McDonough, one of the NAFUSA founders and a past president, and Ed’s wife, Dianne. Both Woods and McDonough are members of Momus. On Saturday night, the Woods and Rossmans watched the Mardi Gras parade and threw beads to the crowds below their balcony.
