We had our last meeting for the workers for the Southland’s Dixie Promenade at American Legion Post 388 on the 15th of June. Everyone contributed their ideas. All in all, it went well. Milt even received a plaque for doing such a great job. There were six of us at the Northwest Louisiana War Veterans Home on the 18th. There was Don V., Don A., John P., Shawn, T.P. and myself. We talk to everyone that wants to talk. We always see Cecil Faries. He is doing fair. Sometimes he doesn’t remember some things, but I don’t either. The home is taking good care of him. John Taylor was at the NWLA War Veterans Home. He became sick again and was moved back to W.K. Bossier. He will be 71 years old on Sunday the 24th. Let’s all send him a birthday card. Also in the hospital at W.K. Bossier is Jim Howard. He has some medical problems and is losing weight. He has a lot of tests to take before finding out what is wrong. Also, Bob Petrus is still in the hospital but is doing a lot better. Let’s all wish them well. Grand Promenade is coming up on the 13th through the 15th of July in Lafayette. Reservation forms are at Voiture 137 or you can get them online at http://www.louisianabulldog.com/cajunlink/id42.html. Installation of officers will be at the Chateau on August 2nd. All of you that were NOT at the Promenade on June 7th and were nominated for a position and you don’t want it, please be at our next Promenade, July 5th and say so. This will allow us time to nominate someone else to be ready for the August 2nd installation of officers. Just in: Don Schreiber fell Saturday night breaking his right hip. He is in W.K. Bossier, room 2010 and will have surgery Monday afternoon. Note: At the Cheminot meeting held on June 4th, a notion was offered, seconded and passed by the voters that dogs would NO LONGER be allowed to run on the property of Voiture 137.
