70th Celebration

The 70th Celebration on Saturday was a big success.  The weather was perfect, the food was great and we had a wonderful escorted parade through uptown New Orleans.

I would like to thank:

  • Porsche of New Orleans for their sponsorship of Mardi Gras Region as well as hosting the party at the dealership.  They also provided the T-shirts and lanyards.  A big thank you goes to General Manager Ryan DeToro, Jennifer Taylor, Sean Kerwin and the rest of the PNO team.
  • Rick and Tina Payton for their ideas and help in putting on these events as well as their tireless efforts for the club in general.
  • Ben Gravolet for designing the credentials everyone received.  The design featured Ben’s photograph of his 356.  The 356 was supposed to lead our parade but unfortunately, it had a mechanical problem right before the event.  Ben put a lot of work into getting the car ready for us.
  • New Orleans and Jefferson Parish Motorcycle Officers for a great escorted parade. 

For those who didn’t make the parade, we had a photographer on St. Charles Ave.  take a photo of every car as we drove by.  These photos will be free to download as soon as they are made available to us.

TESTIMONIALS

  • "This is filler...lets replace. Life itself is a race, marked by a start, and a finish. It is what we learn during the race, and how we apply it, that determines whether our participation has had particular value. If we learn from each success, and each failure, and improve ourselves through this process, then, at the end, we will have fulfilled our potential and performed well." -Dr. Ferdinand "Ferry" Porsche
