    It was VooDoo

    The combination of Mardi Gras and Voo Dudes has proven to be a winning one since it's inception. It was a cool night for just a little while but once the music started it became a steamy night in New Orleans and the Voo Dudes they owned it. And by God there was dancing. Not always pretty it was always fun. While the Voo Dudes ruled the stage. Chef DeMaio and his Crabby Daddys ruled the kitchen. Cajun Tom McGrath's Jamayala was once again a hit for it's taste and a backbreaker for the cast iron saucepan it was prepared in. Oh and jello shots... wouldn't be Mardi Gras with the jello shots. 
    It takes a lot of work by what's typically a few folks to put on these events.  From advertising to booking the band, purchasing supplies, food prep, ordering and hanging decorations, tickets, finances, raffles, prizes and of course someone has to come up with balloons, spoons and 15 feet of string. If you weren't there you'll have to  use your imagination. Not to mention the work that remains after everyone has gone home and the air has fizzled out of the last of those balloons. There's the cleanup, tables and chairs to stack, pots and trays to wash, photos to process and someone has to finish off the jello shots. So when the night turns out to be as good as this one was, well, that just makes it all worth while. To all those who participate behind the scenes --- you earned your beads tonight. To all those who came and had a great night - Thank You Too.

    Irishman of the Year

    He was born in Newark NJ in March 1962 and grew up in Colonia, NJ. He’s the second of three boys born to Robert and Shirley Brown. He attended elementary school in Colonia, Junior High in Avenel, and graduated from JFK High School in Edison in 1976. In 1986 he started his own construction company, Modern Design General Contractors. In June of 1990, he married his wife, Linda Reuter. They have two children, Devon, born in 1991 and Kyle, born in 1996. They moved to Old Bridge in 1997.

    I994 was the year that Ken decided to join the FSOS. He’s been an asset to the club ever since. Projects that he has helped with over the years include: Installation of the siding, building the pavilion, installing the new roof, building the veranda off the lounge, raising the lounge floor to make it level with the main bar’s floor and tearing out the old shrubs in preparation for new landscaping in front of our building. In short, anytime we need a backhoe or dump truck, Ken willingly obliges. His most recent project is our new shed in back of the building.

    FSOS Irishman of the Year, Ken Brown.
