Who is the Cotillion king?

All hail Shreveport attorney Mike Adams!

He is a king!

Adams will reign over the 2007 Holiday in Dixie Cotillion. (When he is not reigning, Adams likes to jog, read, garden, cook and visit with his grandchildren.)

Adams’ name and names of all the court members were revealed Friday night at a black-tie announcement party at the Spring Lake home of Cotillion Board chief Bill Broyles and wife Nancy Broyles.

And, while you are at it, bow to Cotillion Queen 2007 Mary Katherine Bicknell. Prince Robert Poindexter and Princess Catherine Sale round out top royals. (Poindexter has a historical claim to fame: His great-great-great-great uncle George Poindexter was the second governor of Mississippi from 1819 to 1821! He formulated the code of laws still used in Mississippi, called, Poindexter’s Code, according to the prince’s biographical date.) "Awesome," we say.

The Cotillion is the top social event of each spring, when everyone puts on their very best bibs and tuckers — with each woman vying for "best dress." It is April 20 at Municipal Auditorium and you have to be a member to join them. The Cotillion’s 2007 theme: "A Royal Newport Cotillion in America’s Gilded Age."

Ahhh! A golden one.
