As pictured below are the King & Queen of the LA Acadiana Unit-namely King Sam McManus and Queen Lynne Bonin. Don’t the look like a King and Queen? Both were quite surprised but pleased to be chosen for this occasion. All members joined in the Royal Promenade and joined in on the dancing and celebration. Later on King Cake and Ice Cream was served which everyone enjoyed. Curt as usual did an outstanding job with the Seafood and the Stuffed Pork Chops and out did himself on the “Dirty Rice”- Great Job Curt. We know you slaved a long time in this preparation. Patty did a great job herself in the decoration of the tables and surrondings to geive a festive meaining of Mardi Gras.
We had a potential member visit us on Friday. Bill & Gloria Boiter from Vinton, LA. They purchased a 1982 30’ AS trailer in Texas and are in the process of cleaning, restoring and fixing it up with the intention of joining us later on.
