It was a special night for ERSICSS as they named their 25th aspirants to the throne! In honor of their Silver Anniversary, the Queen Mother of the Americas, as recoginized by the International Court System, was in attendance, and she announced several recognitions in honor of Houston's 25 years of participation in the International Court System. Miss Ginger was very pleased that she chose to recognize 2 Houston organizations outside of the Court System, for their support of the court and their efforts to support the community. One was the Colt 45's, a very worthy leather/levi oriented service organization, and the other was the Krewe of Olympus- Texas, Inc! It's very rare for the Courts to formally recognize any group outside of the system, and especially a group that elects a King and Queen. It's nice when organizations can work together!
Anyho- I promised pics, so here they are:
SonnaMae excorted Miss Ginger for the evening, and here they are together at the table:
Miss Ginger's sister, ShyAnne, was last year's Empress and this year's board President, so she was a busy girl all weekend! Miss G grabbed an opportunity to snap a photo with her right after a costume change!
And finally, after Kimberly Ann O'Neil and Bob Skinner were crowned Empress and Emporer 24, the names of the aspirants were announced. Marcia Mink Ann Gill was unnapposed, and was approved by the community for Empress. Miss G grabbed a chance to snap a shot with her earlier in the evening.
After a long, hard year of fund raising and fun raising, Marcia and her consort, JP Gill, will be crowned the 25th Monarchs of all of Houston.
