Mummer Power

Great turnout last night at SugarHouse Casino for the annual Mummers Against Cancer event in Philadelphia.  Mike and Deb, and daughter Debbie, worked hard to put on the event and carry it off. That’s Deb and Deb to the left.

The proceeds are going to the American Cancer Society.

SugarHouse also contributed to the success of the event with the venue and with a card deal for supporters of Mummers Against Cancer.

The band, Big House, also rocked part of the SugarHouse Casino.

As we say goodbye to the first weeks of spring, we look back and see it’s been an active period in the world of Mummery.  The String Band Association held its annual banquet at the Union League.  President Marty Good led the recognition of the participants and award winners from New Year’s Day, plus the special honorees, including the new Hall of Fame members.  Congratulations to all.

Great banquets as well by the Wench Brigade Association and by the Fancy Division and Fancy Brigade Association.






Murray Comic Club held its annual  banquet, which is always a fun time.  Murray also excels with its annual Easter Seals drive.

Woodland String Band held its victory lap weekend with the 1st Prize Gala and the Serenade.

The Mummers Association celebrated the 2012 season and the Mummers Museum held events marking  the resurgence of the museum and the tradition.

Clubs continue with appearances and get ready for the parades that begin to fill the calendar and then, before you know it, it’s time to hit second and third gear in the run for 2013.
