Carmen Miranda would have been 104 yesterday. The Merry Widow Society of Nevada City tip their hats (no small feat) to the Brazilian Beauty and remind everyone that Mardi Gras is but three weeks away.
Every year, the Widows publish The Merry Widow Gazette, and use the money from advertising to fund scholarships for single parents. This year’s edition should hit the stands around February 21st. Watch for it!
UPDATE: Mary Ann has asked me to add that the Widows also accept private donations. You can send a check to: Merry Widow Society, PO Box 313, Nevada City, CA. 95959.
