Nereids announces royalty, parade to roll Sunday night

Nereids announces royalty, parade to roll Sunday night

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

Queen Nerieds XXX111 is Charlene Griffin of Galliano. Charlene is the daughter of the late Marcells Guidry Griffin and Paul L. Griffin, Jr. She is the mother of Callie Griffin, a 7th grader at LCO.

Charlene’s siblings are Larry Griffin and wife Brenda from Toledo Bend and Glenn Griffin and companion Wanda Theriot of Cut Off.

Attending the Queen as her pages will be her daughter Callie Griffin and Kristen Guidry, a 6th grader at LCO; daughter of Bambi Guidry and Vinny Guidry and wife Andrea.

Charlene is retired and is a 5-year breast cancer survivor. She is a charter member and float captain for the past 33 years.

The parade will roll on Sunday, February 26, at 6:00 p.m. through the town of Golden Meadow on its traditional route along LA 1.

This year’s theme will be “Sparkling Women of Nereids”.

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