SLIDELL, La. (AP) — The Krewe of Claude has canceled its ball and parade for the 2013 Carnival season, citing a shortage of members.
Krewe officials tell The Times-Picayune (http://bit.ly/UcEXp3 ) the organization was down to 12 members.
Organization president Mary Ann Hicks blamed bad economic times, and said the krewe will focus on rebounding for the 2014 Carnival season.
