Mardi Gras Celebration

Everyone enjoyed Mardi Gras at the annual Mardi Gras Bash at the Simon George Hall on Feb. 23. The event featured a meal of Cajun food and live and silent auctions to raise funds for the Chris Holcombe Memorial Scholarship fund. Over the past seven years a total of $77,500 in scholarships has been given to college students from Milam County as as result of the Mardi Gras event.
