Well, let the good times roll! Mardi Gras season is upon us and everyone go have some fun. It looks like the train is loaded for the Krewe of Centaur Parade on Feb. 2, 2013, and I am going to have a good time. Anyone can ride in any parade – all you have to do is call and ask. We had a great turnout for the monthly visit to the Northwest Louisiana War Veterans Home in Bossier City. Eight Voyageurs and Legionnaires brought cheer and comradeship to their fellow veterans. Our Voiture visits the Vets Home on the third Monday of each month at 10:00 a.m., so please mark your calendars and come on out. We hope to see you there. The 29th Annual Cajun Wreck will be held at the Holiday Inn Central Holidome in Lafayette, La., Feb. 21-24, 2013. The Cajun Wreck is always a great time and this year will be no exception. We hope to have at least one P.G. from Voiture 137 get wrecked there this year. Registration is $35.00 per person and covers all scheduled events. Please make your checks payable to “Cajun Wreck” and mail to W. H. “Red” Miller, 1137 Aubrey-Ozenne Rd., Broussard, La. 70518 (337-394-5190). Cutoff for registration is Feb. 8, 2013.
