Much-needed rain didn’t dampen the Krewe of Atlas XV Coronation, held July 29 at the American Legion. A deejay, second line and silent auction were among offerings. Make-ityourself tacos by Uneeda were a hot hit, as was an unusual fork pull from a globe that provided possible prizes. The captain is Elizabeth Sims, and the co-captain is David Sims. Duchess of Desire is Kristal Pierce, and Duchess of Mystique is Rebecca Cude. King and queen are John and Bitsy Smith.
