Charter members of the Krewe of Galatea gather annually for a luncheon to reminisce about the organization that was created in 1969 by the late Adrienne Engel. The group purchased a pier mirror that has been donated and placed in front of the Paul Schreier Memorial Theater at the Morgan City Municipal Auditorium. Charter members also purchased a plaque that displays the names of all 120 original members of the krewe. The plaque is displayed in front of the auditorium’s office. On hand for the donation were, seated from left, Mary Catherine Gray, Audrey Thibodeaux, Rosemarie Vining, Lorraine Brownell Moreau and Muriel Manuel. Standing from left are Katherine Distefano, Carolyn Fondren, Dez Kapp, Gail Davis, Marina Lee and Honorine Abel.
