Orange Mayor Jimmy Sims presents Earl Thomas III with a proclamation

Hundreds of Southeast Texans attended Orange’s Mardi Gras on the Sabine Saturday, Feb. 22, and many stayed to attend an after-party honoring Seattle Seahawks safety, Super Bowl XLVIII champ and West Orange-Stark High School graduate Earl Thomas III.

Following the parade at the Orange Pavilion, Mayor Jimmy Sims read a proclamation naming Feb. 22, 2014, as Earl Thomas III Day and presented Thomas with a key to the city.
