Second Annual Mardi Gras Co-op Grow Up Garners Five New Owners!

Our second annual Mardi Gras Co-op Grow Up, held on Friday, March 1st, 2019, at the F.O.E Aerie #1010 (Eagles Club) on River Road, was a rousing good time — and resulted in five new co-op owners!

A “Co-op Grow Up” is a party free to owners and their guests, which provides a gathering to celebrate with a meal, drinks, entertainment, and a brief presentation on cooperative ownership!
