Happy Halfoween!

It’s hard to believe May is here already. As you may know, May marks the start of the Halfoween season for us as we are now half way through the year before the big day - Halloween! In April, we had an awesome time at the Louisiana International Film Festival for the "Baskin" premiere. 10/31 Consortium was a proud sponsor of the award winning horror film! Members earned access to the VIP area party for simply being in costume. That certainly goes

Thanksgiving may have been a few months ago, but 10/31 Consortium is always in the giving spirit!

No Rest for the Wicked

WOW! May was BUSY!!!! I'm sure everyone reading this has attended a graduation, dance recital, school play, band concert, cross over ceremony, or an awards banquet in the past four weeks. Congratulations on making it through. In the midst of all the activity, I hope that you were able to make an event or two with 10/31 Consortium. We participated in two community outreach programs and held our 5th Annual Peanut Butter Cup Miniature Golf Tournament.

Happy Halfoween!

Happy Halfoween! Did you know that Halfoween originated from people being fed up with the fact that we only dress up for Halloween once a year!?!? It's much too fun and should be celebrated more frequently! Thus, Halfoween was born. Halfoween consists of all the relevant traditions from Halloween: Fun and games, people dressing up in costumes, candy, tricks and treats... all of which you can find at our annual Halfoween celebration, the Peanut Butter

Let’s Get Lost Together

It's hard to believe that we are three full months into 2015! It has been packed full of preparing, planning, and partying. We've already got the majority of our 2015 calendar set, the big details are in place, and we had one rocking float in the Spanish Town Parade. It's been a great way to start my year as your president.   That being said, I'm truly thankful for the pause and peace offered to us through the Season of Lent. Lent is not only

Spring into the Fun with 10/31 Consortium!

2014 is proving to be a great year so far! We met our goal of tripling our original donation to Our Lady of the Lake Children's Hospital with a donation of $3,093. In addition to that, we were able to donate 6 large Toys for Tots boxes to the hospital.   We have had several of our members plan a few new events including a Valentine's Day Love Bites Social held at Phil Brady's and an outing to see the Theater Baton Rouge production of "Young

Laissez bon temps rouler!

I've been doing the second line for the past two weeks already. As a parade lover, you can bet I love Mardi Gras. I have made it to 3 out of the 4 Mardi Gras parades we had downtown and even got to walk with the Krewe of Mutts Dog Parade. 10/31 Consortium had a walking group of about 20 people in the parade which helped promote our own parade with black and orange beads tied to dog treats. Everyone had a great time and the crowd loved our pup, Elvis.
