Krewe of Cork®

Announcing 2019 Queen Gayle Dellinger and

2019 Grand Marshal Bryan Del Bondio

At lunch in September, we announced that Gayle Dellinger would reign as Queen 2019.  Gayle has been an active member of the Krewe since 2003 and served as the Royal Coordinator until 2009.

We are elated that Gayle will honor the Krewe as Queen 2019.

We are thrilled that Bryan Del Bondio of Markham Vineyards has accepted our invitation to be our 2019 Grand Marshal

I would like to take this time to thank Laura Symmes for all of her hard work taking the reservations and seating arrangements provided to the Krewe for the past few years. 

This is a voluntary position and I am proud to announce that Kellie Barnes is now in charge of the reservations, so please be patient with our new volunteers as they get used to your names and table mates. Kellie will also be assisting me with membership for enquiries Kellie may be reached at

I want to thank Linda Thompson, Tina Childs and Allyson Navoy for checking everyone in at the luncheons and Walt Navoy for assisting with crowd guidance and helping with folks getting to their seats.

Subsequently, to help control the work load on our volunteers and to be fair to our paying members we will be using some guidelines for our luncheons going forward. They are:

            • Sparkling members who are currently paid up for 2018/2019 will get first priority for reservations.
            • Sparkling members who paid for the previous year and have indicated they intend to renew and Still members who are currently paid up for 2018/2019 will have second priority.
            • Guests and Still members who have paid up for the current years will be accepted if there are spaces available.
            • Efforts will be made to honor seating requests within the constraints of the venue space and the number of reservations. It is hoped that Corkians will join with each other to enjoy the meal and camaraderie when they get the opportunity to sit with members they have not had a chance to meet before.
