We have received several emails the past two weeks from individuals asking if it's too late to join!
I neglected to post on the blog and website but had posted on Facebook and in a recent press release that the deadline for both the student MAID OF HONOR contest and the membership deadline have been extended from November 1st to December 1st.
I should have learned from last year...the same people so caught up in both the beginning of the school year AND Halloween are often interested in Joan of Arc so November 1st (All Saints Day--I just can't resist wanting to use that date for something!) has been too soon both years...from now on I'll surrender to a December 1st deadline!
Because we walk on Twelfth Night (January 6th), Joan's birthday AND the first day of the Mardi Gras season, getting people on board earlier than Christmas time is a challenge--especially considering the 2011 Mardi Gras is March 8th!
Thanks to everyone who has already sent in dues and to those asking to join!
For new members and student contestants, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application. There is additional information about the Maid of Honor contest and member levels in this blog and on our website http://www.joanofarcparade.com/.
If you are returning from last year simply mail membership (review new levels) to our p.o. box.
