Slidell Krewe Cancels 2013 Parade

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 the Slidell 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.
