Welcome to the Krewe Of Phoenix! Our theme this season is PROM NIGHT! We’ve kicked off the season in true Phoenix style with our announcement party on October 10, 2013, held at Routhland. The house and setting were amazing, as were the newly announced Royalty. Rex XXXII Robert Paradise and Rosalie XXXII Cheryl Foggo Rinehart were announced as the King and Queen of the 2013-2014 Krewe of Phoenix Royalty, along with their Dukes and Duchesses. We’d like to give a big thanks to the Ratcliffe’s for graciously opening their beautiful home for the Krewe! If you missed the party, we certainly hope you make the remaining parties this year; we have an awesome slate of Royalty!
Anyone have fun last year at the King and Queen’s Ball on New Year’s Eve? Back by huge popular demand, the Board has decided to add this to the annual slate of Krewe parties!!! Although this year the King and Queen will have their own separate Ball, the Krewe will host a New Year’s Eve party which will be open to all Krewe members! There will be music from Fabulous Easy Eddie & The Party Rockers, lots of food, fun, party favors and midnight champagne! There will be a cash bar available. Tickets will be available for friends, family and non-members for $60 per couple. We look to this for a grand fundraiser as well as a great membership drive opportunity so PLEASE help us spread the word and bring someone with you!
The Natchez Rotary Club & Natchez Children’s Home hosted the 3rd Annual Rotary Broadway Bash Chili Cookoff November 9, 2013. The 2013-2014 Royalty showed up in full Grease attire and kept the party going all day long. Not to let a good party go to waste, Chairman of the Chili Cookoff, Chuck Bearden, and his team lead the Krewe to back-to-back 1st Place Chili Cookoff victories! Great job Chuck and Royalty!

Letter from the Prez
We have already kicked off our season and excitement is in the air as we plan and prepare for all the parties, balls and parades this year. I would personally like to thank our Board of Directors and all volunteers for all they do behind the scenes. These events would not be possible without their hard work.
