March 2021 Newsletter
Welcome to MARCH!
March ushers in the start of milder, beautiful Louisiana weather, increased traffic and our “Annual Spring Charity Garages Sale”. This year we will sponsor: “Boys & Girls Club of Acadiana” and the “Brother Big Sisters of Acadiana”. We are excited to partner with these two great charities who are providing wonderful services to the local community and the children in need. The Garage Sale will take place in the back grassy area as in past years with LIVE music from Cajun Reflections occurring in the tent. There will be FREE Balloon Art and Face Painting for the kids, an Obstacle Jumpy House as well as Food and Drink Specials. Vendors should be prepared to for a busy selling weekend!
WE ASK FOR YOUR CONTINUED COOPERATION regarding Louisiana’s modified OPEN SAFELY PHASE 2: Per the Office of the Governor and Open Safely: Masks are Required and Enforcement efforts do continue across the state. For the safety of customers and staff. We appreciate your commitment and hard work to help slow the spread of the coronavirus in Louisiana.
