Richard and Carol Ivey Named 2022 George P. Mitchell Mardi Gras Award Recipients

GALVESTON ISLAND, TX (November 10, 2021) - Richard and Carol Ivey have been members of the Krewe of Gambrinus (originally known as Krewe of Brewe) for most of its existence.  Both have worked tirelessly on many committees, but have been an integral part of the Social Committee for approximately 3 decades.  Their quiet demeanor of serving others behind the scenes is a quality people appreciate from loyal members of any organization. Carol and Richard are the epitome of this type of loyal member.  Richard has also been an important part of the Board of Directors from our early days and still serves.  He has been asked this year to be a member of the Board Resource Committee, which serves as the Nominations Committee for the Krewe’s Board positions.
