Morgan's Note

Morgan Packard

First its Thanksgiving; then we take a breath and its Christmas; and then we turn around it’s already Mardi Gras!

   Prepare for Carnival with our largest What’s Hot ever, featuring the perfect touches for your party dress to fabulous hostess gifts and much more.
    Someday we all have to learn about the best ways to care for the aging adults in our lives. Our feature starting on pg. 57 shares the latest on local assisted living and nursing care.

   This is also the annual edition of St. Charles Avenue’s Registry of Charitable Events for January-April. If you haven’t set a date for your spring event, look here to make sure the date you’re considering isn’t already chock-full. If you have and you don’t see your event here, please go online and fill out our online form as soon as possible: MyNewOrleans.com/CharitableEvent.

   If you’re looking to make a change in the new year, look to our feature on the latest in advancements in health, beauty and wellness, “New Year, New You.” This guide to some of the best trends on 2017 includes more than 30 items available locally and online!

   Each month we feature 12 or more photos in our Snapshots section to cover those nonprofit events to which we cannot send a photographer. Though we’re working through a backlog, we always love to see more of what’s going on around town! Please email me at Morgan@MyNewOrleans.com for more information.   

   Last month we featured and fêted our 2016 Activists of the Year, and I just wanted once more to thank those incredible six people for all that they do for our city, and to thank those of you who attended our awards event. It is always one of my favorite parties of the year, and it makes me so happy to see so many of you in person.

   Happy Carnival! Raise a glass to all of those who create, participate and reign over the parades, balls and events that make New Orleans’ Mardi Gras “The Greatest Free Show on Earth!”
