Krewe of Nereids announce royalty


The all-female Krewe of Nereids hosted a members only dinner and party recently to present this year’s royalty.

Reigning as Queen Nereids XXXV will be Nicole C. Dufrene, wife of Troy Dufrene of Golden Meadow. She is the mother of Beth Felarise and Brooke Dufrene. Grandmother of Conner Renee, Ryelee Renee, Belle Rose and the late Rage Austin Felarise.

Nicole is the daughter of Raymond “Frip” and Norma Jambon Cheramie. Her in-laws are Dale and the late Mary Ann Cheramie Dufrene. Queen Nereids XXXV is employed by the Lafourche Parish Assessor’s Office and MeMaw’s Restaurant.

Attending the Queen as her pages will be Conner Renee and Ryelee Renee, her granddaughters, and Isabelle Grace and Kate Elizabeth, daughter of Erin and Scott Friedlander and Grace Ann Barrios, daughter of Celeste and Brody Barrios.

The parade will roll on Sunday, March 3, beginning at 6 p.m. through the town of Golden Meadow on its traditional route along LA. 1

This year’s theme will be ‘Nereids Celebrates 35 Years Under the Stars.’

Members will be atop beautifully illuminated single and double decker floats throwing thousands of beads, trinkets and signature throws. This all-female night Krewe was the first in Lafourche Parish and are very proud of the fact that they will forever hold this title.

The Board of Directors of the Krewe and all members invite everyone to come out and enjoy a fun filled evening.
