The Livingston Council on Aging has a new king and queen.
Phil Reichert and Myra Gass were crowned as the COA’s 2018 Mardi Gras king and queen during the organization’s in-house parade at the Denham Springs meal site on Tuesday, Feb. 13.
Reichert, 78, has been a member of the Council on Aging for three years, while Gass, 95 and “loved by everyone,” has been a member for more than 20 years. The king and queen were voted on Thursday, Feb. 8.
Ninety-nine seniors attended the in-house parade, which was led by the newly-crowned Reichert and Gass. Seniors handed out beads, candy, stuffed animals, cups and other throws while others danced to the music blaring through the cafeteria.
After the 40-minute parade, the seniors enjoyed bingo.
