Talking Mardi Gras
A ladies' organization, OOI was formed in 2008, held its first ball in 2009, and staged its first parade in 2010 with an impressive nine floats.
As so often happens, OOI was formed after a number of friends in one of the established groups decided to splinter off. From there, membership grew by leaps and bounds.
The founders chose to name their group after the Egyptian goddess of love and motherhood. A quote at the end of the OOI oath is "Enter as strangers, leave as friends."

This year, OOI paraded on February 19, right behind Neptune's Daughters, which started at 6:30.
The theme for OOI was All That Jazz, and the parade included seven floats rented from the Conde Cavaliers. The Grand Marshal was Steven Tulo III.
